Smelling Lump In The Left Lower Jaw?
Hello good morning doctor … want to ask I have a small lump under the jaw, it’s been a long time but it’s just as big as the size of a marble, so I want to ask what is the danger?
Hello Ritchy, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
The complaint you are experiencing is a bit confusing and not so specific that it leads to a certain diagnosis. The need to do a check directly on your lump. But some of the possibilities that happen to you are:
Abscess. Lymphadenopathy Soft tissue tumor. Cyst, etc. Symptoms that arise from some of the above abnormalities is a lump in the body, which can only be distinguished through direct examination by a doctor. If your current complaint is disturbing you can consult a general practitioner first, if you need specialist treatment / treatment you will be advised to see a surgeon.
The most certain examination to distinguish these abnormalities is to check the lump tissue with histopathological examination.
Right now what you can do is:
Do not press or massage the lump. Get plenty of rest Eat nutritious food Immediately consult the nearest doctor for further examination to be handled appropriately. That's all the answers I can give, hopefully always healthy.
Thank you :)
