My name is Lulu, I am 14 years old, I want to ask a question.rnWhen I felt the back of my right neck there was a lump the size of a seed that was hard and painless. What disease is dangerous?

1 Answer:

Hi Lulu,

Bumps that appear on the back of the neck like you are basically can be caused by several possible causes such as:

Swollen lymph nodes, generally due to inflammation or infection of the surrounding tissue Cysts (fluid-filled sacs) Furuncles (pus-filled nodules due to bacterial infection) Cystic acne Abscess (a collection of pus forms under the skin) Lipomas (lumps filled with fat) Tumors
Whether or not your condition is dangerous will depend on the cause. To be sure, you should consult a doctor for further examination. Through a physical examination with direct observation and touch, as well as supporting tests if needed (such as blood tests, ultrasound or biopsy) the doctor will explore the cause further, so that the right treatment can be given to you according to your basic condition.

Here are suggestions for you:

Keep the skin around the neck clean. Avoid squeezing or breaking the lumps. If pain occurs, you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. Get enough rest and eat nutritious food to keep your immune system strong.
