Lump On The Back Of The Right Side Of The Neck?
Morning, my doctor asked me. My father had a lump on the left forehead and on the back of the right neck. My father often complains of headaches. Even though the blood pressure is normal. It has been chronic and has been around since he was young. now he is 57What is that why? Is it dangerous? Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The lump that your father is experiencing may not be related to the headache he is experiencing. The reason is because the lumps have been around for a long time and usually, associated with headaches, are lumps inside the head, such as blood clots, concussions, tumors or cancer, rather than those on the outer surface.
So it depends on the shape, size, amount, smoothness of the surface, pain or not when pressed, its limits, color and overall appearance, what lumps can actually vary. Can be an HPV infection, skin tags, lipomas, or enlarged lymph nodes. As for the headache itself can also vary. Can be a migraine, tension headaches, stress factors, lack of nutrition, and so forth.
Our advice, you should check your father first to a general practitioner to make sure more about his condition based on direct observation. Thus, misunderstandings can be avoided and the handling can be more appropriate. Meanwhile, help your father to live a healthy lifestyle, keep tension, blood sugar and cholesterol remain normal, keep away from cigarette smoke, support for regular exercise, eating nutritious food and getting enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
