The Large Lump On The Right Neck Is Painful To The Crown And Upper Arm?
On my father’s right neck there was a large lump that hurt to the crown as well as to his upper arm, he said, as if there was a cut in the arm. Did the nerve break?
Large neck lumps should not be taken lightly. Some of the possible causes of neck lumps include:
lymphadenitis, inflammation of the lymph nodes due to an infection, symptoms of enlarged lymph nodes, lymphoma, is cancer of the lymph nodes, glandular tuberculosis, infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis which attacks the lymph nodes, causing symptoms of enlarged lymph nodes, peritonsil abscess, tonsil area infection which if severe the infection can spread and cause swelling of the face and neck, enlargement of the thyroid gland, cancerous tumors. Symptoms of pain in the lumps that also have pain in the arms can be caused by inflammation or the process of pressing on the nerves.
To find out the exact cause of the lump, you should check with a surgeon directly to know the type of lump and what the possible causes are. Maybe in addition to direct examination, additional examinations are also needed such as blood tests or if needed, take tissue.
Some things you can do temporarily:
take pain relievers such as paracetamol warm compresses the painful part helps relieve symptoms drink lots of water consume lots of vegetables and fruit do not squeeze the lumps go to the hospital read about lymphadenitis, glandular tuberculosis, peritonsil abscess, lumps in the neck
