Cause Of The Appearance Of A Lump In The Left Neck?
Ass … I want to ask the doctor, said the lump in my neck left side of the neck bone tu gland .. what is the danger? I have already cleared amoxilin first but if it doesn’t improve, tell me to check again … I’m so scared there is a lump in the neck for a long time but how to get better, what’s the solution? Thank you..
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lumps in the neck can mean many things. Among the possibilities are:
Swollen lymph nodes, due to bacterial, viral, or immune system abnormalities Parotitis or mumps Salivary gland stones Muscle knots Abrnomal growth of fat tissue or lipoma Goiter
And there could be other possibilities depending on the results of the examination. What your doctor does is one step to find out the diagnosis at the same time while handling it. To find out the origin of the lump more precisely, the actual way is to do a biopsy of the lump. Later some tissue will be removed through certain procedures, and examined in the laboratory to see the content.
However, this method is more expensive, not all health service facilities (let alone puskesmas) have them, need trained staff and the time can be longer. So if your doctor assesses this condition is not a dangerous condition such as a tumor or cancer, and more towards enlargement of lymph nodes due to bacterial infection, it will be more practical and easier for you if you are immediately treated with drugs first and only if it does not improve, deeper inspection will be done.
Our advice for you now, obey your doctor's advice by taking medicine regularly and check yourself for control. No need to worry too much, get enough rest, no need to touch the lump, avoid cigarette smoke, and live a healthy lifestyle. So, hopefully answering your question.
