Lump On The Neck?
Good morning, I want to ask if I have a lymph node disease, the lump was at the bottom of the lower head and added to the neck and I had surgery on the lump in the neck just a year ago but why am I still losing weight? Does it have something to do with the lump on my head that hasn’t been removed? nThank you ..
Weight loss generally occurs when the number of calories in is less than the number of calories expended. Although it can be related to a person's diet, sudden weight loss without an obvious cause is a condition that needs attention because it can be related to several serious medical conditions. The following are some of the causes of abnormal weight loss:
Gastrointestinal disorders, for example food absorption disorders
Metabolic disorders, for example hyperthyroidism
As a result of infection, for example TB infection (tuberculosis), this condition can occur in the lymph nodes (Glandular TB)
As a result of malignancy
An examination is needed first to ascertain the cause of your complaint so you should check with your doctor first if the complaint really bothers you. Your doctor will ask for a history of your complaint, perform a physical examination and additional examinations such as a tissue biopsy to determine the cause of the complaint.
If indeed the complaint is caused by a disturbance in your lymph nodes, then appropriate treatment can be given in accordance with the underlying conditions. If the enlargement is caused by tuberculosis infection, the doctor will generally provide tuberculosis treatment and recommend surgical procedures to overcome it.
Here's a suggestion for you:
Do a healthy lifestyle
Get enough rest
Manage stress wisely
Eat healthy foods that are high in nutrition and rich in protein
Immediately consult a doctor if complaints persist or worsen
