Hello Putu Suwartana, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
More detailed information is needed to find out the exact cause of your complaint such as whether the complaint of pain in the lump, whether there are complaints of cold coughing or swallowing pain, whether there is a change in body weight, whether there are complaints of tremor or trembling, whether there is a history of malignancy (cancer) in family. But some of the causes of a lump in the neck include:
Enlargement of the thyroid gland (goiter) Inflammation of the lymph nodes (lymphadenitis) Enlargement of the lymph nodes Inflammation of the parotid gland Cancer (lymphoma) Soft tissue enlargement In the neck area there are several organs such as thyroid, lymph nodes or other soft tissue. To find out the exact cause of the enlargement of the neck whether due to the thyroid gland or others, it is better to consult with a surgeon because it requires direct physical examination and also further investigations such as ultrasound on the thyroid, thyroid hormone examination, or examination of tissue removal (biopsy) . Your doctor will provide treatment that is appropriate for your disease, if it is caused by a thyroid, medication can be given to reduce thyroid symptoms or surgery to remove the thyroid gland. In some cases the thyroid enlargement of the thyroid is also caused by iodine deficiency and if there is indeed an iodine deficiency eat your doctor can suggest to meet iodine intake every day.
You can also pay attention to other complaints such as if the lump feels increasingly enlarged, or there are complaints of difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath, hoarseness, severe pain in the neck area so you should immediately check yourself back at the doctor.
