Lump In Neck Accompanied By Fever Up And Down?
amualaikum,rnI’m Anisa.rnDoc I have a friend (Male 24 years old) she often complains of migraines, and on the left side of her neck there are 2 lumps close to the size of a corn kernel. He also often has a fever at night/morning after he has migraines. The lump is not painful and has been there for a long time. About 1 year and a half. It’s been almost 1 year that migraines often recur, 3x a week and the fever is the same. Migraines are sometimes severe, sometimes normal. No flu and cough. If he has migraines, he usually takes migraine relievers, but it only helps a little, at least only for sleeping and after taking the medicine and sleeping, the migraines are a little less, migraines sometimes coincide with fever, sometimes migraines first, already the migraine really feels then the fever appears. But sometimes it’s just a fever or just a migraine. What I want to ask, with complaints like this, is the lump dangerous and should I be taken to the hospital for examination? And is his condition very bad?rnBecause if you are tired, you immediately have a fever, the next day the migraine will also recur.
Good morning, Anisa. Thank you for your question
A lump in the neck can be caused by a variety of things, including:

· Nasopharyngeal tumor characterized by a history of headaches, nosebleeds.
· There is a lymph node tumor

Folliculitis when a boil-like appearance is found in which there is a hair in the middle.

Enlarged lymph nodes, either due to infection/inflammation (referred to as lymphadenitis) or non-infectious causes (referred to as lymphadenopathy). There are various causes of swollen lymph nodes in the neck, including:

Meanwhile, this complaint does not seem to be related to the presence of migraine. . Migraine is a moderate to severe headache that feels throbbing that generally only affects one side of the head but can also be on both sides of the head and even attacks the neck of the patient. Migraine triggers are:

Migraine itself is divided into 2, namely:
- Migraine without aura ( common migraine ) is a headache accompanied by signs or aura - Migraine with aura (classic migraine) is a migraine headache accompanied by initial symptoms before the headache occurs which usually begins with a dark vision. what do you feel, then I suggest you to check yourself to a doctor or to the nearest hospital so that the exact cause can be determined. The doctor will ask about your complaints and perform a physical examination and supporting examinations such as x-rays, CT - SCAN and if necessary a biopsy after consultation with surgery.
