The Cause Of A Lump In The Back Of The Head That Feels Painful Accompanied By Nausea?
Bismillah..Hello Doctor .. How are you? May doctors always be given health, my name is Debby Nurviani Herdiana, 23 years old. I am a teacher at a private elementary school in Bandung. I want to ask the doctor. 2 days ago I experienced a headache in the back (right) but only in one part. The next day there was a lump about “diameter 2 cm. I also sometimes a little bad mouth (almost nausea). Is there a connection with the lump with a headache that I feel? Oh yes, the lump is a bit hard, if touched it feels painful. Thank you Doctor .. Hopefully This is not a bad thing, Jazakumullah Khair …
Thankyou for asking
Lumps that occur in the head can occur due to various causes. With a variety of causes, the other symptoms that accompany also vary, including the headaches you feel. So maybe your headache is a symptom associated with the lump or not, depending on the cause of the lump.
Some causes of lumps include:
Hematoma, ordinary head injury due to collision Abscess, usually accompanied by pain so that spread can be felt as a headache, red, and filled with fluid Lipoma, fatty tissue tumors existing, complete physical examination to determine the characteristics of the lump, as well as other additional examinations such as head X-ray, CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, and so on. That way the exact cause is known and the accompanying symptoms can be determined influenced by the lump or not, and the handling will be more appropriate.
For now you can do:
Do not squeeze the lump, let alone nod if the lump is red and feels painful and hot compresses Paracetamol can be given to relieve pain If the complaint persists, grows, or discharge immediately to the doctor for further treatment.
That's all, hope it helps.
