ok in my throat behind the tonsils there is a lump lump is my disease dangerous and how to deal with it

1 Answer:

Hi Benjamin Engel,

The tonsils or tonsils are actually lymph nodes in the mouth. Tonsils can enlarge at any time if they are inflamed, irritated, or infected. The lump you are referring to can be caused by enlarged tonsils, enlarged adenoids (lymph nodes behind the nose and throat), or peritonsillar abscesses (collections of pus around the tonsils), polyps, etc.

To find out more about the lump in your throat, it's a good idea to see a doctor so that the doctor can directly see the lump and determine the cause with further examination. By knowing the cause, the treatment can be determined, for example if the result of a bacterial infection is treated with appropriate antibiotics.

In the meantime you can consume more water, also increase the number of vegetables and fruits but reduce spicy and fried foods. Gargle with salt water 3-4 times a day, get enough rest, if fever or pain occurs, you can take paracetamol or ibuprofen according to the recommended dose.

Be aware of the symptoms of diphtheria that are endemic, including the presence of a grayish white membrane covering the tonsils and throat, swollen glands in the neck (can be one side or 2 sides), accompanied by fever and sore throat.

I hope this information is helpful.

Regards, dr. Delvira
