Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. An X-ray of your neck simply shows the following. The thyroid gland in your neck, both on the left and right, is normal and there are no visible growths. Likewise with your submandibular gland (gland located under the jaw) and parotid gland (salivary gland), all according to these readings are considered normal and there are no abnormalities.
Even so, in the back neck area, both left and right, there is more than one protrusion with the length x width x height according to the number you wrote down. So that it gives the impression of lymphadenopathy in the area. Lymphadenopathy is a condition of swollen lymph nodes that can occur due to fungal, bacterial, viral, or protozoal infections.
But once again, we need to inform and remind you that the status of the X-ray examination is a supporting examination, in which its existence is as a complement to, supporting or supporting the results of history or interviews and previous physical examinations. The diagnosis is not made from the results of the investigation itself, but is combined with other findings by the doctor concerned.
Therefore, our advice is to convey these results to the doctor who requested them or to the doctor who treated you to conclude based on other examinations he has done. The treatment plan and medication that you will receive also depend on the decision.
Meanwhile, if the lump is there and feels, avoid touching or touching it, avoid applying or taking any medication without a doctor's prescription, and maintain your immune system with adequate rest, consume more mineral water, and nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables. and fruit. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
