Good evening, I want to ask, on the back of my neck (shoulder) I have a small lump that makes my neck feel achy all the time, is that a little? Please answer, thank you
Hello Riko, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
I understand the concern you feel. A small lump on the back of the neck can be found in diseases:
Sekelan is swelling of the lymph nodes that can be caused by local infections of bacteria and viruses. This can cause symptoms of pain when pressed. If the sekelannya only comes from ordinary bacterial and viral infections, this disease can heal and disappear by itself along with the improvement in the body's defense conditions. Lipoma is a buildup of fat in the layers of the skin and muscles giving rise to dense, springy lumps with flat edges, which are painless and can be moved. Usually if this lump does not interfere with activity, then the lump is left alone and is not given treatment. However, if it has disturbed the activity, then this lump is usually indicated for surgery by a surgeon. Lymphomas are cancers or malignancies of the lymph nodes that cause lumps with uneven edges, cannot be moved, edges are not flat, cannot be moved, body weight drops dramatically, and progresses progressively. The main management of this disease is usually by chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or surgery, as indicated by the tumor surgeon. If the lump appears more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever, weight loss without apparent cause, or limitations on daily activities, it is advisable to immediately seek treatment from a specialist surgeon so that a thorough examination can be carried out such as questions and answers, vital signs examination , physical examination of lumps, and examinations if necessary such as blood laboratories, CT scans, and biopsies, so that treatment can be given according to your diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now are:
- Taking pain relievers such as paracetamol with the dosage indicated on the medicine packaging
- Do not squeeze or press lumps
- Get enough rest and consume nutritious food to help the recovery process
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
