Good Evening I Want To Ask?
I am a man aged 21 years, some time ago began when the trip was I was asleep in the crib and then my neck position was very bent from there my neck was not feeling well. that was about 2 weeks ago. then this bad taste continues even now like swollen left under the cheek. This has been going on for almost 10 days and there has been no change. suddenly last night I saw in my stomach the upper left there was a lump. what is this?
Hello, airshare14, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swelling under the cheek can be caused by several possible causes, for example trauma / injury due to collision or blunt force pressure, there is widespread gum inflammation, parotitis / mumps, swollen lymph nodes, Ludwig angina (infection of the soft tissues of the neck and floor of the mouth), etc.
Meanwhile, a lump in the upper left abdomen can be a lump from the skin (for example: a skin abscess, acne / pimples, keloid), lipoma, or a lump from an internal organ such as an enlarged spleen.
To determine the cause of a lump or swelling that occurs to you, a physical examination should be done directly by a doctor. The doctor will look at the type of lump, general physical examination, ask for a medical history, and if necessary a supporting examination such as a complete blood test, ultrasound, X-ray, etc. Treatment depends on the cause.
If the lump / swelling does not go away, feels pain, there is redness, disrupts the function (for example in the mouth so can not chew, difficult to open the mouth, can not swallow), there is toothache, difficulty breathing, there is abdominal pain, nausea / vomiting, fever , then you should not delay to see a doctor.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
