Hi Yadi,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

A lump in the neck that enlarges to the size of a quail egg should indeed be examined directly by a doctor. You can check with a general practitioner first. Usually, the doctor will conduct a structured interview and a thorough physical examination. Then, it is decided what the appropriate treatment step is, whether by giving medication, referring you for further tests (eg laboratory, X-ray, ultrasound, or biopsy), or also referring you to a specialist (eg surgeon or internal medicine specialist).

The lump in your neck that you experience may be caused by:

Lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes), for example due to tuberculosis, cytomegalovirus, syphilis, infection of the head and neck Lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes) due to other causes, such as cat claw, lymphoma, cancer metastasis Sebaceous cyst Dermoid cyst Folliculitis Lipoma Cancer, and so on At this point, the wisest thing you can do is to keep the lump from becoming irritated, ruptured, or inflamed. The trick is not to manipulate the lump excessively, whether it's pressing, picking, massaging, or applying anything. Always keep your neck area clean by diligently bathing, shampooing, and wearing clean clothes. Keep your immunity up by eating healthy and nutritious foods, getting regular rest, and avoiding smoking and alcohol.

I hope this helps.
