Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A lump above the eyebrow that continues to grow and has a hard consistency should not be underestimated. It could be, this lump appears due to a malignancy (cancer) that requires special treatment. Some other characteristics of lumps that need to be suspected of being malignant are firmly attached to the surrounding tissue (difficult to move), irregular shape, unclear boundaries, easy to bleed, even suppuration, and often accompanied by drastic weight loss.
In addition to cancer, it is also possible that the lump that your sister is experiencing appears due to other causes, such as keloids (formation of excess scar tissue after inflammation), benign tumors (eg cysts, fibromas), infections (eg folliculitis, acne, warts), skin tags, and so on. .
Headaches and colds can occur due to other causes, not necessarily related to the lump above the eyebrows. Headaches can occur if your sibling is sleep deprived, tired, stressed, eating too late, or overexposure to the sun. It could also be, headaches arise due to a disease, such as migraines, brain tumors, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, sinusitis, and so on. While colds, can appear due to allergies, viral infections, bacterial infections, nasal polyps, sinusitis, entry of foreign objects into the nasal cavity, and so on.
Your sister should immediately visit a doctor at the nearest health facility for further treatment. Or, the doctor will take a tissue sample from the lump that appears for a microscopic examination (biopsy) to assess the cells that make up the lump.
At this time, in addition to not holding or pressing the lumps that appear too often, your sister should also take the following steps so that the headaches and colds subside:
Take regular sleep Take paracetamol to reduce headaches Avoid stress Do not be exposed to cold, animal dander, dust mites, or excessive pollen Stay away from pollution, cigarettes, and smoke Use a mask to prevent harmful foreign particles from entering the respiratory tract Eat healthy and nutritious food with regular Hope it helps ya..
