The Cause Of The Neck Is Often Swollen With Fever?
Peace be upon you, I want to ask. I often experience swelling in the neck sometimes the left side, sometimes the right side and sometimes both. Swelling is like spreading, sometimes round like marbles and sometimes also extends. And this time the swelling made my body hot, if I didn’t use a fan I felt very cold. Right now I’m on a diet not eating rice, does it have anything to do with that diet? Or how? And how do I deal with it? Thank you!!!

Swelling is a response from the inflammatory process in an area of the body, so what needs to be known is the cause of inflammation that occurs. Inflammation can be characterized by a concomitant complaint, in the form of pain, redness, increased temperature, and can be followed by swelling.
In the neck region, there are various tissue systems that make it up, ranging from the skin, blood vessels, glands, nerves, airways, food channels to bones. So that the swelling that occurs in the neck area may be caused by inflammation in one or several of its constituent tissues.
Below are some causes of complaints of swelling in the neck area, such as:
1. an abscess or pus pus
2. swollen salivary glands, especially when the swelling is below the jaw area of the neck
4. swollen lymph nodes
5. benign fat tumors or sweat gland cysts
To ascertain the cause of the swelling in this neck area, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a surgeon, or ENT physician subspecialist head and neck surgery. Thus, doctors can conduct interviews, direct physical examinations and if necessary carry out supporting examinations, such as blood tests, radiological examinations, to biopsy or tissue examination. The results of the examination will be the basis of care and treatment that will be given to the patient.
In connection with your question, if you encounter a swelling as large as a marble that can disappear (at the same point), the possibility of this swelling can be caused by an enlarged lymph node in the neck. This condition can be influenced by the clinical condition of the patient, namely the presence of flu, cough, or lung infection can cause swelling of the lymph nodes. So as to prevent recurrence of swelling, direct treatment of flu, coughing, or infection needs to be done and evaluated immediately. Usually accompanying complaints in the form of a body feels tired, all pain, or fever can be felt. So to reduce this complaint, you should be able to rest sufficiently, approximately 7 hours per day.
Thus, this swelling is probably not related to the diet that you do. Because, this diet does not cause inflammation in the neck region, even a good diet can idealize body weight and support body health.
You should immediately consult with a surgeon or ENT doctor as described above, so that these complaints can be immediately evaluated and ascertained the cause. So that proper handling can be given according to the examination results obtained.
Thus the info we can convey.
