The Cause Of A Lump In The Neck Due To TB Glands That Always Appear Despite Being Operated On?
At night, I have a younger brother who has tbc glandular disease, 2 times op, but a lump in the neck has reappeared, because of what factors? Until the lump reappears in a different place, still in the neck area. Thank you
Thank you Sister Dwi for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Glandular TB is a disease caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis, this bacterium commonly attacks the lungs. But in the case of TB this bacterial gland attacks organs outside the lungs, such as lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are spread throughout the body, but in the case of TB glands, the glands most commonly affected are lymph nodes in the neck.
Lumps that arise on the neck can be caused by various things, such as:
2. Soft tissue tumors
3. Tb gland
To make sure the lump in the neck is caused by what disease despite surgery, it is still advisable to see a doctor, for further tests such as biopsy that is taking samples from the lump and examined under a microscope.
Hope this helps, thank you.
