I am 18 years old and there is a lump above the collarbone for about 2 weeks, it was only 1 lump then now when I touch it to be 2, one is smaller than the other, around the neck on my right side is a bit swollen and the lump hurts when in the hold, why do you think? thank you
Lumps in the groin and neck can arise due to several possible causes, including:
Lymph node infection
Other infections that cause swollen lymph nodes such as respiratory infections, fever, glandular tuberculosis or skin infections such as abscesses
Lipoma or abnormal fat growth
Warts or viral infections of the skin
Other medical conditions
For this reason, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor so that the cause is known. Later, physical and supporting examinations will be carried out such as blood labs, X-rays, ultrasound, sputum samples or biopsy or tissue samples to determine the cause of the lump.
If the complaint of lumps arises accompanied by fever, prolonged cough, weight loss, night sweats, pain, it is necessary to immediately do an examination so that the cause is immediately identified and treated.
May be useful,
