Lump On The Collarbone?
At night, I want to ask, my child has a lump on the collarbone, about 3cm, not red, but pain when pressed, and fever too. Right? Oh, 1 week ago he also had fallen from the swing to somersault, could that be the cause? But this is a lump, not swollen .. please answer, thank you ..
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain, since when did you see the lump, did the lump appear suddenly or slowly get bigger, are there certain symptoms that are felt by your child?
The following are some possible causes for the appearance of a lump over the collarbone:
fracture of the collarbone infection of the collarbone enlargement of lymph nodes dermoid tumor cysts (can be benign tumors under the skin such as lipomas, or tumors of the bones) Fractures (which can occur due to injury / fall) and infection of the bone will usually cause pain when moving or when the lump is pressed. While enlarged lymph nodes, dermoid cysts, or tumors may not show any symptoms other than just a lump. To be sure, a direct examination must be made on the lump (the lump must be seen and touched directly, and if necessary additional tests such as radiological examination or biopsy of the lump). You should take your child to the pediatrician for further evaluation. If your child has a growth disorder (he is not gaining weight, the child has difficulty eating, often has a fever, has a coughing for a long time), or if you see a lump growing rapidly or the lump is ruptured and ejects pus and blood, examination to the pediatrician should not be delayed anymore.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
