Side Effects After Surgery For Lumps On The Right Neck?
I have a 7cm lump in the neck on my right, after the biopsy results (benign lesion) or some kind of lipoma. After consulting with several specialist surgeons at the hospital where I live, they suggested surgery, even though the lump was not malignant.
Hello Brother Alyhafdiz,
Lipoma is an overgrowth of fat cells below the surface of the skin which will get bigger. the presence of a mass of lipoma-type tumors is generally harmless. It does not require chemotherapy or radiation as in malignancy or cancer. It's just that the presence of an enlarged tumot lipoma in the neck will give a feeling of discomfort, in addition to disturbing appearance, it can also suppress and irritate the organs around the neck such as pressing the throat (airway to the lungs) and the esophagus (food channel to the stomach) will make swallowing problems, choking, a feeling of blockage when swallowing, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. when pressing on the muscles and innervation can cause soreness and muscle feeling tense. When pressing the blood vessels it can cause soreness and headaches.
Treatment is primarily with surgery which can be consulted by your surgeon. The doctor will perform a direct examination, the location of the tumor and the organs underneath whether it is attached to a certain part. The removal of the lump if it is near the surrounding blood vessels can pose a risk of bleeding. If it is near the nerve, if it is allowed to continue to press the nerve and irritate the nerve, it will reduce its nerve function. If surgery is performed, if the nerve is small and smooth enough, there is a risk that the nerve will break, especially if the tumor is getting bigger and pressing on the nerve. Consult the risks and side effects of action to a doctor who has done a direct examination of the location and size of the tumor so that the information provided can be specific. may be useful
