Doctor, there was a barely palpable swelling in the nape of the right side of the neck before I knew it I was feeling excruciating pain and fever. I haven’t had any blood tests, x-rays or ct scans. What should I do doctor? I have gone to a doctor near my house, he said it is a type of gland, but after 3 days my head is often dizzy. Guidance please? Thank you in advance

Hal Fadillah,

Thanks for the question. Glandular fever is a contagious infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus which is transmitted by direct contact or by coughing/sneezing. Patients with glandular fever will have symptoms of swollen lymph nodes in the neck or armpits, fever, dizziness, muscle aches, sore throat, and easily tired.

A lump in the neck can be caused by:

folliculitis abscess lipoma cyst atheroma swelling of the lymph nodes If this complaint has not improved, please consult your doctor again because the doctor needs to examine you to determine the next treatment. The doctor may perform additional tests such as blood tests to help find the cause.

In the meantime, do the following suggestions:

get plenty of rest avoid excessive physical activity multiply the consumption of nutritionally balanced foods such as vegetables and fruits increase the consumption of water consume paracetamol to relieve fever Hopefully this information is useful.
