Swelling In The Right Neck?
Afternoon doctor, I want to ask, I have a lump in the right neck for 6 years, I have had medical examinations to the doctor and also in the ultrasound, and the results are not very clear, then the doctor referred me to do an MRI, but I haven’t done it, according to the doctor’s explanation the lump is swollen blood vessels, dangerous if left alone huh? If the surgery is a big risk? Because sometimes it feels tight neck when the wrong sleeping position. Please help. Thank you..
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A lump in the neck can mean many things, including:
Swollen lymph nodes
Salivary gland stones
Inflammation of the salivary glands
Liquid-filled sac or cyst
Regarding your case, we cannot confirm whether the diagnosis was made to you, that the lump was a blood vessel, it is true or not. We can't correct because we don't check you directly. There is so much information and physical examination data that we don't have about you. To be sure, you can check yourself with other surgeons. It is your right to obtain a second opinion. If your second doctor concludes this too, then chances are that they are. What is clear is if indeed a blood vessel, it should be treated immediately.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry excessively, and simply respond by living a healthy lifestyle that is by avoiding cigarettes, eating healthy foods such as vegetables and fruit, maintaining ideal body weight, avoiding alcohol, and exercising regularly. So, hopefully answering your question.
