Lump Under The Neck On The Left And Feels Hard When Pressed?
Hello doctor, I’m Clara, I’m 25 years old. I want to ask a question under my left neck, there is a lump that when I press it hard, sometimes it deflates, sometimes it swells and it hurts when you press it. What’s the cause? and what are lymph node symptoms? thanks
Hi Clara..Thanks for the question
Lumps on the right and left sides of the neck are often caused by swollen lymph nodes. However, these lumps can also be caused by other things such as the thyroid gland, salivary gland cysts and abscesses. Previously, we will describe a little explanation yes.
Swollen lymph nodes due to infection. These glands contain immune cells that will help fight bacterial and viral infections. The lymph nodes will swell when there is an infection around the neck area such as an infection in the teeth, sore throat, cough, cold, measles etc. When the infection clears, these glands will shrink on their own. These lumps will feel rubbery and may be painful when pressed. Lymphoma, cancer of the lymph nodes. Lumps can grow anywhere such as the neck, armpits, and groin. Symptoms include: prolonged fever, weight loss, frequent night sweats. Enlargement of the thyroid gland/goiter. The lump will be palpable around the Adam's apple area. This enlargement is caused due to iodine deficiency, thyroid gland infections, thyroid cancer and autoimmune diseases. Enlargement of the salivary glands (mumps/mumps) is often caused by a viral infection. A cyst is a sac filled with fluid. Parapharyngeal abscess, caused by viral and bacterial infections in the throat, infection causes complications of the formation of pus around the throat. This condition causes severe pain, difficulty eating, difficulty speaking if the lump has grown. A lump on the neck can indicate mild or severe disease. Therefore, we advise you to consult a doctor if the lump in the neck does not go away, even accompanied by pain in the lump and fever. The doctor will carry out an immediate physical examination and supporting examinations if necessary, such as blood tests, ultrasound, CT-scan or MRI as well as a biopsy. I hope this information is helpful
