Good afternoon,

Hello Lestari, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Lumps in the neck are signs that can be caused by various diseases, such as:


Mumps. Thyroid swelling can be caused by instability of thyroid hormone production. Symptoms and signs of this disease can be a lump in the neck that can move according to swallowing movements, palpitations, cold sweat, and protruding eyes

Lymphadenitis is inflammation of the lymph nodes caused by bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic infections. Signs of this disease can be fever, and the appearance of lumps in the neck, armpits, and groin folds that usually feel warm and painful on the touch.

Lymphoma is a malignancy or cancer of the lymph nodes. This disease can cause symptoms and signs such as lumps in the neck, armpits, and thighs that progress rapidly and progressively enlarge, lumps usually cannot be shaken, there is weight loss, night sweats, fever, and weakness.

Lipomas are lumps of fat that grow between the layers of the skin and muscles. Usually these lumps can be moved, springy consistency, slow growth, and no pain

All lumps that grow abnormally in the body are called tumors, and are generally divided into 2 types, namely benign and malignant tumors. Benign tumors have characteristics: easy to move, softer consistency, do not grow quickly, and do not spread quickly. Conversely, malignant tumors are usually more fixed (difficult to move), more dense consistency, grow quickly, and easily spread to other organs.


However, to distinguish the two types of tumors more accurately than by physical examination by a doctor, must use "histopathological examination" or by examination of "tumor marker"


The treatment for each disease is very dependent on the type of disease you have. In general, benign tumors do not need to be handled specifically, or by "tumor excision". However, for tumors that are more malignant than surgical removal of the tumor, can also be done "radiotherapy" or "chemotherapy" according to the type of tumor found in the examination.


I suggest you to consult a general practitioner or a surgeon, and preferably with a doctor who used to handle your thyroid surgery, to get further tests, or if the lump gets bigger in a short period of time, until it blocks the respiratory tract, the voice becomes hoarse , and you are losing weight, check yourself immediately at the nearest health facility.

Thus the information from me, hopefully helps.
