Is A Hard Bump Behind The Head Dangerous?
Hello dokI want to ask, is the bump behind the head dangerous ?? .. I have a lump in the back of the head feels hard !!!
Hello Rifvky Andre Pirlo, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified again about the location of existing bumps such as on the back of the head (around the ear), in the face, or neck area. Are there also other complaints such as pain in the bump area, fever, cough or runny nose. Some causes of your complaint include:
Lymph node enlargement Benign tumors in the skin area (lipoma, cyst) Respiratory tract infections (usually due to viruses) Infection of the skin area It is better to pay closer attention to these lumps and see if there are any signs of inflammation (red), getting bigger and if not disappear within 2-4 weeks, you should consult with a surgeon. Your doctor will do a physical examination, blood examination, radiological examination or biopsy examination (tissue taking) on the lump area to determine the source of the lump.
Some things you can do:
Enough sleep to help the immune system Drink plenty of water and consume nutritious food Compress the lump with warm water. If there are aches or pains you can take over-the-counter pain relievers like paracetamol Hopefully this information can be useful. thanks.
