Postoperative Removal Of A Small Lump In The Left Neck?
good afternoon i have a lump near the left neck dislocated around the collarbone as small as a marble (in plain view). On 30 December I had surgery to remove the lump. I want to ask whether colli tumor (doctor’s diagnosis) and lymph node infection are the same
Hello Yuli, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Colli tumors are lumps that grow in the area around the neck, can be small to large so that it is clearly visible. The most common cause is swollen lymph nodes, which are actually useful in the body's lymphatic system to protect against infection and malignant cells that cause cancer. In addition, several other diseases that can cause the appearance of a lump in the neck are:
viral infection of the thyroid gland / thyroid disease neck injury or torticollis / stiff neck muscle autoimmune disease There is a link between colli tumors and glandular TB infections, but to be sure usually the doctor will do an additional examination in the form of a lump sample to be examined in the laboratory. Usually if the doctor suspects that there is a glandular TB infection, the doctor will do the examination, and will do a digging of your previous medical history such as the symptoms of weight loss for no apparent reason, the body feels uncomfortable, fever and night sweats. And look for a medical history in your family whether there are family members who have TB infection or not. If you want to find out, you should consult your doctor again so that you don't worry about this. We cannot confirm it, because we do not deal with your illness directly. So that we can convey, hopefully help.
