A Lump In The Neck Near The Collarbone Accompanied By Pain When Swallowing?
Good morning. My neck has a lump of fat precisely in the collarbone, initially only one lump but now has added to 2. And now my throat / neck feels pain when swallowing. My neck pain has something to do with my fat lump, and what kind of treatment should I do u0026amp; pay attention? Thank you
Hello Ayu, Thank you for the question.
Have you seen a doctor and confirmed the cause of this lump? Do you experience other complaints such as cough, runny nose, fever, muscle / joint pain? Complaints about swallowing can be caused by strep throat, tonsillitis, flu, or acid reflux disease. The lump above the collarbone that you mentioned can be caused by swollen lymph nodes. Swollen lymph nodes can occur if the body has an infection and the size of the lymph nodes can return to normal when the infection has healed. If your sore throat is indeed caused by an infection such as strep throat, tonsillitis, or flu, then maybe the lump you are referring to is caused by swollen lymph nodes. In addition, these lumps can also be caused by lipomas, cysts, abscesses, glandular TB, lymphomas.
You can do the following suggestions:
get enough rest
increase consumption of nutritious foods
consume lots of water
gargle with salt water to help soothe a sore throat
Feel free to consult your doctor immediately if your sore throat doesn't improve for more than 2 weeks, has a high fever, complains of difficulty swallowing, or the lump is enlarged. A direct doctor's examination is needed to determine the cause of your complaint. The doctor may suggest further tests such as blood tests, ultrasound on the lump, biopsy of the lump, and others to find the cause. After knowing the cause, the new doctor can provide further treatment. Hopefully this information is useful.
