Difference In Neck Lumps Due To Glandular TB Or Hyperthyroidism?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask, how to distinguish physically from a lump in the neck caused by tuberculosis or caused by hyperthyroidism. Thank you doctor
Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
Glandular TB and hyperthyroid disease or thyroid disorders are both marked by a lump. But actually, the lumps in the two diseases are very different. I will try to explain first, whether it is glandular TB and hyperthyroid disease.
Glandular TB is an infectious mycobacterium tuberculosis disease that infects the lymph nodes. The gland's lymph nodes in certain parts of the body. Whereas hyperthyroid disease is a condition where there is a disruption of thyroid hormone production in the thyroid gland. In addition to hyperthyroidism thyroid hormone deficiency can also cause lumps in the thyroid.
To distinguish them, you can see from the following:
lump location, in the glandular TB swelling or a lump on the side of the right neck and left neck. The lumps are the size of peas and will usually be felt when touched. As for the thyroid gland lump located in the middle of the neck close to Adam's apple. The lump is usually getting bigger and can be seen when seen from the outside. symptoms of a lump, the TB glands are usually not accompanied by pain and feel soft. As for the thyroid gland, the lump will move when swallowed and there are other signs of symptoms such as excessive sweating, weight loss and trembling. If you experience this, you can check yourself to the doctor so that further examination and proper treatment can be done.
