Hello Ayu, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Rio will try to answer your question.
Based on the complaints you feel, there are several types of diseases that might occur to you. To ascertain what disease you are experiencing, from the information you mentioned is still not specific to point to a particular disease. And in determining the diagnosis any health interview must be carried out in more detail and a physical examination must be carried out directly by the doctor to you.
From complaints of palpable lumps in the neck above the ear, the possibility of disease that occurs is as follows:
Enlarged lymph nodes / lymphadenopathy Lymphadenitis Lipoma Cyst, etc. Some of the diseases above have signs and symptoms that are almost the same as what you are complaining about. For the treatment of these lumps, a doctor must first be examined. Due to several types of diseases above have different causes. So this also determines what actions will be taken next. If the lump that occurs to you is an inflammation due to an ordinary infection then the treatment can be enough with medication. However, if the lump leads to a more serious condition or disease, a laboratory examination is required first and the handler can be removed or operated on by the lump.
Right now what you can do is:
Enough rest. Eat nutritious food and drink lots of it. Do not often press / massage on the lump. Consult a doctor if the complaint gets bigger or causes other complaints that can interfere with your daily activities. That's all the answers I can give, hopefully always healthy.
Thank you :)
