A Lump That Feels Aching In The Area Between The Chin And Neck When Pressed?
hello, this is my first time using this, sorry if my words are stating ..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A lump that feels in the area between the chin and neck (lower jaw) when it feels painful when pressed most often indicates the following conditions:
Skin infections, such as folliculitis, warts, abscesses
Lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes), for example due to the spread of inflammation due to tooth and gum infections, tuberculosis, syphilis, cytomegalovirus, HIV)
Lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes) due to other causes, such as lymphoma, leukemia, drug side effects, immune disorders
Parotitis (inflammation of the parotid gland, salivary glands)
Others, for example sebaceous cysts, lipomas, fibromas, sarcomas, skin tags, hyperkeratosis, and so on.
In fact, this lump is not always dangerous. However, in some cases, if the lump is not handled properly, there can indeed be more serious complications (for example if the lump is associated with an infection or malignancy). Therefore, it is safer if you still check first with a doctor or surgeon. To identify the cause of the lump, the doctor can direct you to undergo further tests, for example x-rays, ultrasound, biopsy, and so on. Depending on the cause, the lump can be treated in different ways, for example by observation, administration of drugs, and even surgery.
At this time, we recommend to you:
Don't overdo the bumps that appear
Warm compresses on areas of aching bumps
Improve personal hygiene, especially around the neck and oral cavity
Maintain endurance by discipline to live a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
