Lumps On The Back Of The Neck At The Age Of 60 Is Cancer Or Not?
Hello., My father is around 60 years old. Behind the bumps and bumps, now I want to ask what the lump is, whether it’s cancerous / not and how to cure it or how to get rid of it. Thank you.
Hello Agus, Thank you for the question.
Has your father gone to the doctor? Further examination by a doctor is needed to ascertain the cause of the lump. Without a direct examination by a doctor, the cause may not be known for sure. Lumps on the back of the neck can be caused by:
lipoma, which is a benign growth of sebaceous cyst fat tissue, which is a liquid / soft liquid-filled sac formed from skin tissue or hair follicles abscess, which is a collection of pus formed in the body including under the skin caused by a bacterial infection. Please bring your father to see a doctor first. The doctor needs to ask further questions about this lump and then examine the lump. If necessary the doctor will suggest other examinations to make sure such as ultrasound or biopsy. After confirming, the new doctor can determine the appropriate treatment for your father's condition. For a while, avoid trying to break the lump. Keep the area clean.
I hope this helps.
