Swelling In The Front Of The Neck?
Good morning, I want to ask why my neck at the front feels swollen, I checked with the doctor, but he said that inflammation in the swelling does not hurt, only feels achy in the back of my neck, my glands, is it really inflammation
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The neck is formed from the top of the chest to the area around the lower jaw. In this area various systems and tissues of the body are composed, ranging from the skin, glands, nerves, bones, to the respiratory organs and digestive organs on the inside. Therefore, the swelling in the neck region can be caused by inflammatory processes and malfunctioning of the organ systems that go on.
The presence of swelling in the neck can be identified possible causes by knowing the nature of the lump, its location, accompanying complaints and clinical examination results from doctors who treat patients.
Some of the conditions below can cause the same complaint, namely:
1. enlarged lymph nodes
2. swollen salivary glands
3. swelling of the thyroid gland
4. an abscess in the skin
5. Benign tumor of fat tissue, or oil gland cyst
In connection with your question, from the results of your doctor's examination that conveyed the inflammation process in the swelling in the neck, it might have the same meaning as what you think, namely glandular abnormalities. So the possibility that your doctor is referring to is inflammation of the glands and what you mean is swollen glands. Therefore, this difference is generally not an obstacle, so you can continue your doctor's plan with regard to treatments and treatments that have been planned and discussed with you.
In addition you can also try a number of things, such as avoiding cigarettes, avoid sleeping late, avoid physical fatigue, and do a warm compress on the bump area regularly.
And if this complaint still persists, you can re-control your doctor, so that the doctor can plan further examinations, such as blood tests, radiology, or tissue biopsy. Thus, it can be known with certainty the cause of this swelling.
Thus the info we can convey.
