The Appearance Of A Lump In The Neck That Feels Lump In The Throat?
I want to ask a lump in my neck like Adam’s apple, it’s a lump in my throat but if eating / drinking it doesn’t hurt. Yesterday I checked with the doctor, said he had strep throat, but I was still in doubt because after I had strep throat it was painful and hard to swallow. My graham teeth are perforated and a few weeks back the swollen gums, does my throat have anything to do with perforated teeth? Then the word can also be neck abscess, are abscesses dangerous? If you leave it like that?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a lump in the neck that feels lumpy in the throat can indeed refer to a variety of conditions, for example:
Sore throat (pharyngitis); not only pain, strep throat can also cause the throat to feel lumpy, swollen, slimy, itchy, or many other complaints
Enlarged lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy); can be caused by infection, benign or malignant tumors
Enlargement of the thyroid gland; can occur due to autoimmune disorders, inflammation, iodine deficiency, benign or malignant tumors
Skin enlargement; can be caused by infections (including abscesses or cellulitis), allergies, injuries, tumors
Enlargement of muscles and surrounding tissue; can occur due to injuries, torticollis
Others, for example parotitis (inflammation of the salivary glands), throat cancer, hypertrophic scars, etc.
Your cavities can easily facilitate infections that can spread to the gums or other surrounding tissue (including soft tissue in the jaw and neck). Spread of infection to this area can indeed trigger swelling and a lump feeling like you experience. However, this condition also should make your lump feel painful, so you have a fever, difficulty in swallowing, even breathing.
You should never guess. If you have already checked your condition to the doctor, but it has not improved, you should check back to your doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that the cause is evaluated more deeply. Ultrasound examinations, x-rays, laboratories, etc. can be done by doctors if deemed necessary. At this time, you should focus on maintaining your personal hygiene, including with a diligent shower and regular toothbrushes. Avoid over-pressing the bumps that appear, let alone give any treatment without doctor's advice.
