Hello Rangga Jenggo,
Lumps in the neck can be caused by various diseases ranging from mild to severe, including:
Enlarged lymph nodes: most often caused by infection, but can also occur in malignancies (cancer) Swelling of the salivary glands Sebaceous cysts Thyroid nodules Parafaring abscesses Cancerous tumors Cancerous tumors Benign tumors and cancer can originate from tissues located in the neck (there are many), therefore a direct examination with a doctor is needed in order to determine whether a lump is suspicious toward benign or malignant. This is needed to determine the future therapeutic plan. The doctor also needs to ask for a history of complaints, such as how long the lump has been there, there has been a history of lumps in other parts of the body, a family history of similar lumps / cancer, a history of previous operations, a history of previous patient illnesses, accompanying symptoms such as weight loss, long cough, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, trembling hands, and a history of treatment that has been done.
Some lumps are dubious from physical examination, it is necessary to support the examination starting from ultrasonography, CT-scan, MRI, or tissue biopsy. Treatment will be given according to the diagnosis results from the examination.
Lumps in the neck should not be underestimated, although it does not cause any complaints. Bring your wife to see a doctor, especially if the lump persists> 2 weeks, the lump gets bigger, lumps in the neck accompanied by complaints of shortness of breath and difficulty swallowing, lumps in the neck that cause skin changes such as the appearance of wounds or redness and pain. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
