What I want to ask is whether there is a link between the lump and the pain in the leg. Please explain … Thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
There are many possible causes for neck lumps. Some of the most common causes are as follows:
Enlarged lymph nodes, can be caused by gland tuberculosis, infection by bacteria, lymph node tumors, or spread of cancer from other organs
Enlargement of the salivary glands, for example: parotitis, parotid tumors
Thyroid enlargement (thyroid gland), for example: excess thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism), lack of thyroid hormone (hypothyroid), or thyroid gland tumor
Abscess, has a reddish characteristic, accompanied by pain
We recommend that you check your child directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or ENT specialist doctor so that an appropriate evaluation and appropriate treatment can be carried out. Muscular aches and pains, including in the legs, may be part of a systemic symptom of an underlying disease that develops a lump in the neck, for example an infectious condition or a malignancy that triggers inflammation throughout the body. However, it does not rule out the possibility that pain in the foot is caused by other different problems, such as a history of trauma, muscle or tendon attraction (strain), interest in ligaments (sprain), nerve clamping, etc. The doctor needs to evaluate through anamnesis the history of the disease, carry out a physical examination, and if necessary investigations according to the indications found, such as blood tests, ultrasound or biopsy of a lump in the neck, and X-ray of the foot. Do not delay to the doctor if the size of the lump continues to grow in a short time, the child's weight dropped significantly, and experienced fever, swallowing pain, coughing up blood, and hoarse.
As a suggestion at home, your child is advised to get enough rest, eat a balanced nutritious meal, and drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
