The Cause Appears A Small Lump In The Neck?
Afternoon, I want to ask about my illness, there is a small hard lump on the right neck and the effect is on fever, headache, and sometimes food sickness, please tell me what the disease is, and how to treat it. Thank you “
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lumps on the right neck that appear coupled with fever, headache, and pain when chewing food may indicate:
Lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes), for example due to tuberculosis, cytomegalovirus, syphilis, HIV
Skin infections, for example acne, folliculitis, secondary infections in tumors, skin tags, or lumps due to other causes
Thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland)
Parotitis (inflammation of the salivary glands), and so on
A direct physical examination is needed to find out the cause of your complaints. Therefore, you try to check yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that you can clearly know the causes and treatments that need to be done to cure your complaints. Depending on the cause, later the doctor may provide enough medication or can also perform surgery on the lumps that appear.
At the moment, our advice is:
Do not massage or hold with dirty hands a lump on the neck
Take paracetamol to reduce fever, headache, and pain when chewing food
Eat foods that are easy to swallow, easy to digest, and don't trigger excessive saliva production
Drink water and eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C more
Hope this helps ...
