The Cause Of A Lump In The Neck More And More?
afternoon, I want to ask .. if there are lumps in the neck the longer the more so why? The beginning is 1 but now there are 4
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what is the exact size of the lump? Is the size growing quickly? How long has it been appearing? Does it itch, pain, or other complaints? What is the color, consistency, and mobility of the lump?
Lumps in the neck can occur due to a variety of the following conditions:
Skin enlargement, for example due to folliculitis, tumors, lipomas, cysts, hyperkeratosis
Enlargement of the thyroid gland, for example due to autoimmune disorders, inflammation, nodules, cancer
Enlarged lymph nodes, for example due to infections, tumors
Others, such as calcification, parotitis, normal clavicle bone protrusions, and so on
These lumps can be dangerous in nature, or may not, depending on the cause and severity. Therefore, you need to check with your doctor or surgeon so that the cause of a lump in your neck can be known and treated early. In most mild cases (such as a lump due to infection), a lump in the neck may improve considerably with observation and treatment. However, for some cases, doctors can also perform other therapeutic modalities (such as surgery, laser, chemotherapy).
At this time, you should not press or pull the lump that appears excessively, especially with dirty hands. Focus on maintaining personal hygiene, do not exchange personal belongings with others, get plenty of rest, live a healthy lifestyle, and compress lumps when it hurts. Do not forget, avoid carelessly consuming or applying drugs to the lump without consulting a doctor first.
Hope this helps ...
