A Lump In The Neck Returned After Biopsy?
hello, i am 20 years old. I have done thyroid biopsy twice with an interval of several years because of this lump in my neck and was in the same place. The first biopsy when I was in 4sd and the second biopsy when I was in high school. After 4 years since I last performed a biopsy, a lump appeared in my neck, but in a different place, it was above the collarbone and it hurt, how do I do that?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, it helps you explain in advance how your thyroid biopsy results are. If this time the lump appears above your collarbone, then the lump is not the thyroid gland. lumps in the area can be caused by enlarged lymph nodes (due to various causes), broken collarbone (if there was a history of trauma / impact / accident), tumors under the skin (such as lipomas), or can also be caused by cysts under the skin . Enlarged lymph nodes can be caused by infections in the organs around the gland (for example infections in the lungs, skin in the chest and neck area), infections of the lymph nodes themselves (for example glandular tuberculosis infections), general infections (usually there is enlargement of lymph nodes in places also others), lymph node cancer, or the spread of other cancers to lymph nodes.
You should do a check up with the surgeon to find out the cause of enlarged lymph nodes for sure. The doctor will touch the lump directly and possibly re-biopsy to determine the cause.
For now, you can try to compress the lump with a warm compress to help reduce the pain in the lump.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
