Lumps In The Groin Are Missing?
My neck has a lump and my doctor said I got a glandular tb, but in my groin there was also a lump, there was a lump like this before but it disappeared on its own and now there is more, now the question is what is in my groin tb gland or different diseases?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Groin in the groin is most often a lymph node (KGB). KGB that is enlarged or palpated from the outside usually indicates an infection or inflammation in the surrounding area, for example enlargement of the groin / groin KGB, most often due to infection from the genital and surrounding areas. Germs from these sources of infection will enter through the lymphatic channels and congregate in the lymph nodes / KGB to be destroyed by the body's immune cells. As a result of this destruction process, the KGB will enlarge so that a bump appears and if the KGB is inflamed it can cause pain in the bump area, redness, skin changes, fever, etc. KGB enlargement is called lymphadenopathy. In addition, the lump can also be caused by malignancy, autoimmune diseases, spread / metastasis of cancer from other places, benign tumors (lipomas, cysts, etc.), and so forth. In glandular TB there is also an enlargement of the KGB, but the enlarged KGB most often occurs in the neck or called the scrofula because it is located closest to the lungs. Symptoms that can arise include weight loss for no apparent reason, the body feels uncomfortable, fever, and night sweats. This scrofula is a TB infection in the KGB that is transmitted through air contaminated with TB germs. Transmission of TB germs increases the risk in people with low immune system, such as those who take immune system-suppressing drugs, chemotherapy patients, HIV sufferers, etc. To ensure the cause, you should consult a doctor, especially if complaints are felt disturbing, the doctor will do a question and answer about enlargement of the gland, such as the characteristics of a lump in the gland, progression, trigger, family history, and so forth. The doctor will do a thorough and specific physical examination on the bump area, and may also do some additional tests if needed such as laboratory, X-ray, CT scan, biopsy, and so forth. Handling will be adjusted to the cause of the lump, if the lump is a suatulimfadenopathy, usually will improve by itself when the source of the infection has been resolved. It is better to avoid squeezing or solving the lump and compress with warm water if the complaint is felt painful. If the lump gets bigger, feels hardened or does not move when moved accompanied by high fever, weight loss, or skin changes you should not delay to see a doctor. It is better to maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat nutritious food, get enough rest, meet the needs of fluids, avoid smoking and alcohol, and exercise regularly.
Thus, hopefully useful.
