Handling Of Lumps In The Throat?
Tonight, 2 months ago my mother checked nasal polyps and had to be laser-treated, until now she still consumes drugs but there are other symptoms in the form of a lump about the size of a thumb in the right throat, and it feels painful to swallow, often also headaches. Previously there was a small but after taking the drug began to grow, is this the influence of the drug or are there other symptoms of the disease?
Lumps in the throat can be caused by several causes such as:
Enlargement of lymph nodes due to infections such as ear, nose, throat infections, respiratory infections, dental infections and can disappear when the infection has resolved
Inflammation in the throat can be triggered by bacterial, viral, allergic infections or infections such as tonsils
The presence of a lump due to muscle tension can be triggered by the habit of screaming, talking often, singing, stomach acid irritation that goes up to the throat, or other causes
The presence of fluid-filled sacs or cysts that can vary in size and amount
Goitre or an infection of the parotid gland
For this reason, it is important to note that after the consumption of the drug has finished but there are still lumps and other symptoms such as swallowing pain, fever, lumps when swallowing food, it is necessary to re-evaluate the nose and throat specialist to determine the cause.
Try to consume more fluids, rest your throat, avoid fatty, greasy, too hot or too cold foods, choose foods that are easier to digest, avoid dust and cigarette smoke, one of which is by using a mask and also taking medicine that has been given by the doctor as recommended. .
