Lump On The Child’s Neck?
my child has been treated for spots for 8 months has been declared healthy after checking the LED blood 37. but there are still lumps in the neck.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Is it true that from the beginning you were diagnosed with tuberculosis your child also has a lump in his neck?
If so, then your child may indeed suffer from glandular tuberculosis as well. Gland tuberculosis does respond longer to the therapy given. Lymph nodes can be permanent or enlarged even though therapy has been given, but this does not indicate that the therapy given failed. An enlarged residual lymph node (which still remains large after therapy is complete) is very common and can occur in 20-40% of patients with post-treatment gland tuberculosis. These residual lymph nodes usually do not require additional therapy (including unnecessary extension of tuberculosis therapy) unless the culture results from the lymph node biopsy indicate tuberculosis bacteria are still present in them.
For now, you only need to pay further attention to the lymph nodes in your child's neck. If there is no enlargement in the next few months or even the glands shrink and disappear, then there's nothing you need to worry about. If you notice that the lump is getting bigger, there are still symptoms of tuberculosis, there are still eating disorders or growth disorders in your child, you should take your child back to the pediatrician to get further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
