Hello, good morning Ulli.
Lumps in the neck can be caused by many possibilities, including:
lymphadenopathy or swelling of the lymph nodes (KGB). This condition is generally experienced as a result of an infection that occurs in the area around the KGB, for example when someone is experiencing a cold cough, ear infection, sore throat, or a wound in the face / neck / chest area, then the KGB in the neck can become enlarged. In this condition, generally the lump just gets bigger, without being accompanied by pain. In addition, lymphadenopathy in the neck can also result from infection with tuberculosis (TB), a condition called glandular TB. lymphadenitis or inflammation of the lymph nodes. In contrast to lymphadenopathy, in lymphadenitis inflammation occurs in the lymph node itself. In lymphadenitis there can be pain, redness, the skin feels warm, and fever. lipoma or fatty tumor. This condition is a type of benign tumor that occurs due to the accumulation of fatty tissue under the skin tissue. Lipomas can occur in many locations on the body, and the neck is no exception. Basically a lipoma will not cause pain, but if the lipoma is large enough, it can press on nearby nerve fibers and cause pain. swollen thyroid gland (goiter) cyst, which is a fluid-filled sac. Generally, cysts are painless and can go away on their own without special treatment. However, cysts can become infected and cause painful symptoms. salivary gland stones malignancy
To find out for sure the cause of the lump you are experiencing, it takes direct examination. This is because each disease has its own characteristics, which can only be distinguished by seeing and examining it directly (both from its shape, consistency, whether it can be moved from the bottom of the skin or not, etc.). Therefore, we recommend that you see a doctor (especially an internist or surgeon) for further examination and treatment. The doctor will do questions and answers regarding complaints, perform a physical examination, and if needed, the doctor may recommend additional examinations such as blood lab tests, X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, or tissue biopsy. Do not delay the examination, especially if the lump you are experiencing is accompanied by fever, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, weight loss, palpitations, hoarseness of voice, blood in the saliva, or changes in the skin around the lump.
While waiting for the schedule to see the doctor, avoid touching or massaging the lump, because it is feared that it will worsen the complaint. Also avoid applying any drugs without a doctor's recommendation. If the pain is bothersome, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as paracetamol for a while.
That's all, hope this helps ...
