Hello Moryna, Thank you for the question.
The cause of a lump in the neck is quite diverse and to be sure of course it needs to be examined by a doctor directly. The following are some of the causes of neck lumps:
swollen lymph nodes. Lymph nodes play a role in the body's defense system by producing immune cells. When you get an infection, the body produces immune cells in large numbers which causes swollen lymph nodes. The size of this gland will return to normal when the infection that you experience is cured
glandular tuberculosis (glandular TB), which is a bacterial infection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in lymph nodes
lymphoma or lymph node cancer
If this lump does not disappear for more than 2 weeks, the size increases, appears without apparent cause, and feels hard, you should immediately consult a doctor directly to ascertain the cause. The doctor needs to do an interview to understand your complaint, do a check on you, and do other tests such as blood tests, ultrasound, or biopsy. The doctor will determine further treatment after ascertaining what is the cause of the lump. Without a doctor's examination, the cause cannot be ascertained. Therefore, you should not delay consulting with your doctor because this complaint has lasted for one month.
Meanwhile, it is recommended that you maintain your health by:
consume nutritious food
adequate water intake
get enough rest for 6-8 hours
Avoid smoking and consuming alcoholic drinks
manage stress well
avoid people who are sick
always keep your hands clean
Hopefully this information helps you.
