Front Headache Between The Eyes And Nose Accompanied By A Neck Lump?
Hello … I am 15 years old. When I was a child, I had frequent nosebleeds almost every day. But since I was 12 years old I have never had a nosebleed again but often had a headache. Back then it was still a headache. Until around this year almost every day. Precisely at the top of the nose between the eyes. I checked at the eye doctor and told to wear glasses but this has no effect at all. Oh yeah I also have a lump in the left neck. I guess what can I do to overcome my symptoms?

Headache can be caused by various things, including:
Migraine headache tension (tension type headache) Eye refractive disorders such as nearsightedness or farsightedness Anemia Viral or bacterial infection conditions Pain in the eye area is often caused by eye refractive disorders such as nearsightedness or farsightedness, can also be caused by a viral infection. Anemia can also be one of the causes of frequent headaches. Generally, women who have menstruated every month are very susceptible to experiencing this condition. Previous history of bleeding such as nosebleeds can also trigger anemia and cause headaches. Symptoms such as weakness, fatigue, lethargy, less productive, often sleepy, difficulty concentrating can also accompany the condition of anemia.
Associated with a palpable lump in the left neck generally is an enlarged lymph node / swelling. The lymph node (KGB) is an organ where the immune system is produced. KGB is spread in several parts of the body including the neck, chest, abdomen, groin and armpits. The swelling indicates the body's response that an infection is happening. Lymph nodes when enlarged is also called lymphadenopathy, if accompanied by pain there may be an ongoing process of infection (lymphadenitis) in the lymph node area.
Some causes of swollen lymph glands include:
Viral infections such as herpes simplex and shingles Bacterial infections such as tuberculosis, ear infections, dental infections, etc. Cancer autoimmune disorders
Etc. Besides lymph nodes, several other diseases that can provide the same symptoms in the neck include lipomas (benign fatty tissue tumors) and thyroid disease.
You do not need to worry, because not all lumps are a dangerous disease. Generally, the lump can heal and disappear by itself. Beware if other symptoms are found such as lumps that do not heal / disappear for more than 3-4 weeks, significant weight loss, cough does not heal, night sweats for no apparent reason, shortness of breath, lumps get bigger, etc.
Ideally, a direct examination is needed to assess the condition of the lump. Investigations such as blood laboratories, ultrasound and fine needle biopsy examination can help determine the type of abnormality experienced.
Here are some suggestions that you can do, including:
Check the sharpness of vision to assess whether there are refractive disorders such as nearsightedness or nearness Use appropriate glasses Increase consumption of fluids Consumption of foods high in iron such as red meat, chicken / beef liver, vegetables, fruits and can be helped with iron supplements Adequate rest Regular exercise Avoid stress and heavy activity Consumption of pain relievers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen If symptoms do not improve or get worse, you should do a check with the nearest doctor to get an evaluation and management accordingly.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
