1 Answer:

Hi Benri,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

A swollen neck, mucus in the throat, and a tingling feeling in the tongue can result from abnormalities in the area around the mouth, throat, or other surrounding tissues. Some of the possibilities that could trigger the complaint are:

Tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils)

Parotitis (inflammation of the parotid glands, salivary glands around the jaw)

Submandibular abscess (pus-filled sac that forms as a result of infection of the mandibular spasia)
Oral cavity cancer (malignant tumors in the oral cavity, for example on the tongue)

Throat cancer (malignant tumor in the throat, often in the nasopharynx)

GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease, backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus)

Lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes, can result from tuberculosis or other infections, cat scratch marks, tumors, side effects of drugs)
Yeast infection in the oral cavity (often related to poor personal hygiene or weak immune system, including due to malnutrition and HIV-AIDS), etc.

The best treatment for your various complaints can only be determined after the cause of the complaint is well identified. And this is only possible if the doctor has done a physical examination on you in person. Therefore, check with your doctor immediately .. In conditions that are suspected of being serious, the doctor can direct you to undergo x-rays, blood tests, swollen tissue biopsy, ultrasound, or some other supporting tests in order to determine the best treatment.


In the meantime, you should not massage or put too much pressure on the swollen neck area. Compress the swollen neck with warm water if it feels uncomfortable. Get plenty of rest, don't overdo activities or scream too loudly. Drink more warm water and reduce the consumption of foods that are too oily, spicy, and contain artificial sweeteners first. Gargle with salt water, brush your teeth more diligently, and eat more foods rich in antioxidants, especially vitamin C.


Hope it helps ..
