The Relationship Between Swelling Behind The Ear And Swelling At The Back?
Afternoon doctor, I want to ask there is a swelling in my right back, now in the back of the ear and neck. If I press it, is the swelling related to each other? And that’s why doctor? What should I do?
The onset of swelling in the right back can be caused by the following things:
Swelling due to physical trauma or injury (hematoma) Lumps due to skin infections, for example boils (folliculitis), abscesses Benign skin tumors, for example fat tumors (lipomas) Cysts, cysts are bags filled with fluid / semi-solid objects Malignancy If the complaint is caused by infection or inflammation, the back pain of your neck and ears may be related to the lump because inflammation or infection in the back can spread and cause inflammation of the lymph nodes (lymphadenitis) around the neck.
However, the two complaints you may have are not related to each other. The onset of complaints of pain in the neck and back of the ear can be caused by primary headaches such as tension type headaches, migraine or due to other medical conditions (secondary headaches).
A direct examination is needed to determine the cause of your complaint, so you should check with your doctor if the complaint is very disturbing or cause anxiety. The doctor will ask for a history of your complaints, conduct a physical examination and supporting examinations if needed. Investigations that can be recommended by a doctor is an ultrasound examination or tissue biopsy to determine the cause of your lump.
If the lump is caused by a tumor or cyst, the doctor generally recommends a surgical procedure to resolve your complaint. As for the headache complaint, prescribed NSAID-class anti-pain medications such as ibuprofen and appropriate antibiotics if they are caused by infection.
The following recommendations for you:
Get enough rest Avoid conditions that can trigger complaints Perform a healthy lifestyle Immediately consult a doctor if complaints persist or worsen Hopefully useful,
