Causes And Treatment Of Lumps In The Neck?
good morning, u003cbr u003eI am Dinar Situmorang, 30 years old.
Hello Dinar, thank you for asking.
The thyroid gland located on the front of the neck, can experience several disorders, such as inflammation, benign tumors, cysts, or malignant tumors. Abnormal mass growths are generally nodules or thyroid cysts. Nodules are solid, while cysts are fluid-filled sacs. We certainly don't know exactly what lump you have. However, if the biopsy found a number of fluids, then the possibility of the lump is a cyst.
The liquid that is inside the cyst is wrapped by a thick membrane that forms the walls of the cyst. Therefore, it is very unlikely that fluid can come out of the cyst and then flow into the chest cavity. Even if the fluid seeps out of the cyst, the fluid will spread around the cyst and then absorbed by the intersective tissue. Fluid will not flow toward the chest cavity or chest wall, because anatomically, it is not possible. We also don't really understand what you mean by 'fluid seems to go down to the chest'. If indeed you feel there is a lump in it like water on the breast, then maybe there really is a breast cyst.
Therefore, you do not need to worry that your milk will be affected by fluid in the thyroid, because there is no pathway for fluid in the thyroid to reach the mammary glands. However, if you want to be sure, please consult with your treating doctor. The doctor will explain your condition and the possibility of anything that can happen.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
