good afternoon .. I want to ask … on my right neck .. there is a swollen gland … it’s been 1 year .. I’ve been to the doctor said infection … given the drug … but I didn’t finish the medicine. not now still … can be moved … and not enlarged … then a few days ago appeared a small lump below the lump that had saty that year … the shape is still small, soft and can be moved … my body is not weak (not easily tired), my appetite is still normal, and my weight also does not go down …. but at night I often shiver when the temperature of the room is cold .. why is that …
Good evening Linda, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading your complaint, it can be caused by several possible conditions such as:
Lymph node infection
Enlarged lymph nodes due to infection from surrounding organs / tissues
Malignancy in lymph nodes
In order to ascertain what causes your lymph nodes to continue to enlarge and when new ones arise again, it is highly recommended that you further check with a surgeon. Your doctor may recommend biopsy of the gland, to determine the cause and then determine the treatment based on the results of the examination, whether surgery is needed or enough with medication alone.
For now, don't try to stress or make other efforts to get rid of the lump other than the methods recommended by your doctor. If you get medicines from a doctor, especially antibiotics, SPEND those medicines, unless a doctor gives you a description of when the drugs need to be stopped because the drugs need to be consumed according to the dosage and duration of use to ensure that the drug works effectively.
Regarding shivering when in a cold room, this is a reasonable response produced by the body because shivering is one of the body's ways to help increase body temperature to keep warm. If you always experience this, then you should make the room temperature warmer or use body warmers such as jackets or blankets.
I hope this helps.
