A lump in the neck can usually be caused by many conditions. However, of the many conditions, enlarged lymph nodes are the most common and therefore need to be considered in cases of lumps in the neck. In addition to enlarged lymph nodes, the presence of a lipoma or fat accumulation under the skin, then an abscess or collection of pus under the skin.
Enlargement of the lymph nodes itself is mostly caused by infection by either viruses or bacteria, in certain systems in the human body. If the accompanying symptoms are flu, cough, it is likely that the infection originates in the respiratory system. By treating the infection, the lump will generally go away on its own. Infections are treated with adequate fluid intake, nutritious food, and if necessary, the use of antibiotics, of course with a doctor's prescription. Therefore, our advice, if the condition does not improve, it is important for you to re-examine your child to the doctor. Here we attach an article about lumps in the neck. Hope it is useful.
