Lumps in children can be caused due to various causes. Some of the causes that can cause neck lumps include:
TB infection, non-specific infection of the lymph nodes, cysts, neck area, blood disorders such as leukemia, lymphoma, certain tumors. One of the causes that can cause neck lumps and is quite common is glandular TB infection. Glandular tuberculosis infection in children is quite common. Glandular tuberculosis infection causes symptoms such as the child looks weak, the weight does not increase or decrease, the neck lump is usually multiple, and may be accompanied by a slight fever. Glandular TB infection can occur for a long time, and can disappear if treatment with anti-TB drugs has been done for a certain period of time.
Therefore, to determine the exact cause of your child's condition, you should immediately have your child checked by a pediatrician, so that the doctor can further examine the condition of your child. maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as blood tests, ultrasound, or biopsy if necessary.
