Hello, my doctor is destin .mau ask me for a few days there is a lump under my chin. When the movement of my neck feels pain if there is no pressure movement on the back of the head with the ears. This is a symptom of lymph nodes
Hello, good evening Dhestin.
Lumps under the chin can be caused by several possible diseases, including:
enlarged lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy) due to infection in the area around the neck, for example, experiencing strep throat, tonsillitis, wounds around the face / neck, etc. lymph node infection (lymphadenitis) lipoma (a benign tumor that contains a collection of fat). Generally, lipomas do not cause pain, but if they are large enough, this disease can press on the nerves around them, causing pain. salivary gland infection, also known as mumps (mumps / parotitis) goiter (enlargement of the thyroid gland) salivary gland stones (sialothiasis) etc.
It is very difficult for us to determine the cause of the lump you are experiencing without looking at it and checking it in person. Because each disease with the main complaint of "lumps" has its own characteristics when examined, such as consistency (hard / soft), color, whether there are signs of inflammation around it, temperature at the time of touching it, and so on. Therefore, to ascertain the cause of the condition you are experiencing, we recommend that you see a doctor. The doctor will take anamnesis (questions and answers regarding complaints) and perform a physical examination. If deemed necessary, the doctor may order additional tests, such as blood lab tests, X-rays, and biopsy.
Meanwhile, what you can do at home while waiting for the doctor's appointment is: avoid pressing or touching the lump and any conditions that can cause complaints of pain in the lump. You can take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as paracetamol, to help temporarily reduce pain.
I hope this helps.
Best regards, Dr. Denisa.
