Lumps In The Neck Do Not Enlarge But The Weight Does Not Increase?
Since 2014 I have had a bump on my neck until now in 2020. The lump does not increase from year to year. The condition that I experienced in myself did not happen anything every year but only the weight did not increase. My height is now 176cm, weight 45kg and my blood is O. My body is tall and thin, even though I always eat a lot and like to snack too but still I don’t gain weight. Maybe that’s all I experienced. Please answer, thank you.

We understand the inconvenience of your complaint
Lumps in the neck can be caused by various causes, including:
Enlarged lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy)
Infection of the lymph nodes (lymphadenitis)
Thyroid disorders (hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroid cancer)
In addition to the lump, further data is needed related to other complaints that you may experience, such as pain in the lump, tremor, often feeling hot and sweaty, coughing for more than 2 weeks, can not stand the heat or cold, losing weight or increasing, easily tired, diarrhea or constipation, and various other complaints to find out the estimated disease.
Thin stature, although it consumes enough food can occur due to genetic / hereditary influence and can indicate a medical disorder that must be further evaluated. Weight gain that is difficult to gain / thin can be related to a lump in your neck. However, to ensure this condition, a more complete examination is needed.
Ideally, a direct physical examination is needed to assess the characteristics of the lump on your neck. Characteristics of a lump include its size, the consistency of solid or springy, mobile / can be moved or not, the edge / boundary of the bump, the surface of the bump, and the presence or absence of pain or discoloration of the skin around the bump can help to assess the type of lump experienced. The progression of the lump also needs to be known, namely whether from the beginning the size of the lump persists or increases in a certain period of time.
To find out more precisely what type of lump you are experiencing, we recommend doing an examination directly to the nearest doctor. The doctor will do a more specific examination to find out the type of lump.
Investigations such as blood tests, hormone tests, ultrasound, x-rays, biopsies to CT scans may be needed for further tests.
While waiting for a more specific examination, the best advice for you to do at home is to maintain the health of your body by consuming healthy and nutritious food, increase your water consumption, get enough rest, avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.
