I want to ask, a few days ago I realized that there was a lump in the neck of the bag but it wasn’t too big, and several days after that I felt my body just wanted to sleep / was lazy to do activities, not only that I also had difficulty swallowing ( like there is phlegm but must several times to swallow it) is this dangerous or just a common disease? thank you

Hi,


A lump that appears on the upper neck with a size that is not too large is accompanied by other complaints that you experience such as difficulty swallowing, maybe the lump that appears on you is a lymph node. Lymph nodes can normally enlarge when your body is experiencing an infection, because the function of the lymph nodes itself is actually the body's defense system. Swallowing pain that you experience may be caused by:

pharyngitis is inflammation of the throat due to a bacterial infection or viral infection
tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsil glands due to bacterial infection or viral infection
tonsillopharyngitis is a combination of inflammation that occurs in the throat and tonsil glands

However, the lump that you experience in your neck should still be checked further by an internal medicine specialist because it is feared that it can be caused by other diseases / possibilities such as:

TB gland
parotitis is an infection of the parotid gland
salivary gland stones
swelling of the thyroid gland
cyst
lipoma
lymphoma

Some things you need to pay attention to:

further check the condition to find out the cause of the condition you are experiencing
enough rest
avoid drinking cold, ice, avoid eating foods that are oily, fried, and spicy
multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruit
drink lots of water at least 2 L per day

hopefully useful, thank you
