A Lump On The Neck That Hurts When You Turn Your Head?
I’m a 20 year old woman, 165 bb. 74. On my right side of my neck, a lump the size of a green bean has appeared, but it’s not hard. When I first went to the doctor my lump disappeared after I took paracetamol and amoxilin, and now after 2 months it appears again but it is much smaller but accompanied by pain when I turn to the left like someone sleeping wrong. Does this include colly lymphadinopathy? And how to overcome / cure? Thank you
From the information you conveyed, there is a complaint of a lump in the neck, possibly an enlargement of the cervical lymph nodes, so this condition includes a lymphadenopathy in the neck area.
In patients with enlarged lymph nodes, it can be characterized by lumps under the skin of varying sizes, tenderness, redness, until pus can appear.
In patients with repeated complaints of enlarged lymph nodes, it is necessary to know the cause or trigger for these complaints, so that you can avoid the risk of recurrence in the future.
The following conditions can cause complaints of enlarged glands, such as:
1. infection of the lymph nodes, tuberculosis of the glands
2. lung infection
3. sore throat that doesn't improve
4. a persistent cold or flu
6. ear infection
7. Decreased immune system
Treatment needs to be confirmed directly by your family doctor or ENT doctor who treats you, because this treatment will only be given after the doctor has determined the possible cause. Investigations can also be planned, such as x-rays, blood tests, or biopsies. So that the results of the examination will be used as a benchmark for the care and treatment process.
What you need to do to avoid a relapse is:
1. avoid physical fatigue
2. Avoid sleeping late
3. Avoid the habit of fried foods, instant drinks that may cause throat disorders
4. ideal body weight
5. exercise regularly
Thus the information we can convey, also read lymphadenopathy.
