Swelling On The Back Of The Head On The Left Feels Throbbing Pain?
Hello, I am swollen on the back of the head on the left side but it doesn’t hurt, the pain is often burning on the left front of the head, what do I do?
hello Shin ha na,
Swelling of the head can arise due to several possible causes, including:
Collision or trauma Boils Cysts or formation of fluid filled sacs Swollen lymph nodes Hematoma or swelling due to bleeding Lipoma or lumps due to abnormal fat growth Often times these conditions cause no symptoms but can be enlarged or not so it is necessary to examine directly by a doctor to be sure the cause. If it does not interfere, some do not require special treatment, but if it interferes or gets bigger, it is necessary to do treatment starting from administering drugs or also lifting for example. Previously, it was also necessary to do an examination first to find out the cause, starting from the blood lab, ultrasound examination, X-rays and others.
If the cause is infection, the doctor will give antibiotics such as in lymph node infections. But if the cause is a lipoma or cyst, it is necessary to treat it.
