Neck Lumps In Children Aged 2 Years?
Peace be upon you, and Allah mercy and blessings…
Hello warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, hello Mr. Rospian Rosi thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Lumps located on the neck can be assumed as an enlarged lymph node, because lymph nodes are most commonly found in the area such as the neck, face, behind the ears, armpits, groin folds. However, do not rule out the existence of other lumps that are not lymph nodes, such as lipomas, but this is very rare.
Basically, one function of lymph nodes is to maintain the immune system. So that when an infection occurs, the lymph nodes will work hard to produce an army of white blood cells to ward off infections that enter the body. If the infection occurs too often, it does not rule out enlarged lymph nodes, because lymph nodes are forced to work too hard in producing blood cells that function in the immune system. Infections that usually occur in children and often cause swollen lymph nodes are colds or flu, ear infections, sinus infections, dental infections, dental infections, skin or sore throats. In addition there is one dangerous chronic disease that can also cause enlarged lymph nodes in children, namely lymph node TB, lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis.
To be sure, of course, is to have your child checked by a pediatrician to find the underlying cause of the condition. If it is safe, then you don't need to worry, but if it is indeed a serious matter, then handling can be done as early as possible. Thus we can convey, hopefully the information from can be useful for you. thanks.
