Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
There are many diseases that are marked by the growth of a lump in the neck. The following are some lumps in the neck related to your other complaints, namely:
1. Goiter or goiter, which is an enlargement of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland produces thyroid hormones that function in metabolic processes. There are 2 types of goitre, namely toxic goitre which is characterized by hyperthyroidism or high levels of thyroid hormone in the blood and non-toxic goitre which is characterized by thyroid hormone in normal levels. If the thyroid hormone level is high it will cause sweating even in a cool or cold environment, palpitations, shortness of breath, drastic weight loss and the eyes appear more prominent.
2. Lymphadhenitis, which is inflammation of the lymph nodes in the neck. Often caused by the spread of germs from infections in the nose, ears, esophagus and airway.
You should consult with an internist. So that medical interviews and physical examination can be done. If necessary the doctor will request the necessary investigations, such as routine blood, ultrasound of the thyroid gland and fine needle biopsy. The treatment that doctors will give is based on the cause, yes.
Meanwhile, you can try to relax your mind by taking a deep breath and exhaling slowly. Do this relaxation routine every two hours and especially when your breath feels difficult. Also try breathing in hot money to relieve the airway. You can compress the lump with a warm cloth gently.
Thus hopefully useful.
