Lump is an abnormal tracking in the human body. These lumps can occur in all parts of the body, whether on the surface of the skin, rubbed, or in other organs. The lump itself, can be benign or malignant, so it is necessary to consult directly with an oncologist or a tumor specialist to find out the cause of the lump. The doctor can plan supporting examinations such as FNAB to find out the cause of this lump, from what tissue and whether the lump is benign or malignant.
In lumps under the chin and in the neck area, these lumps may be caused by several conditions, such as:
1. enlarged salivary glands
2. swollen lymph nodes
4. enlargement of the thyroid gland
5. Sweat gland cysts
In connection with your question, if your father has done the FNAB examination according to the referring doctor who treats, then the results of this examination should be immediately consulted with the treating doctor, so that the results of this FNAB examination can be confirmed directly by the doctor treating your father, because he is more understanding the condition of your father and the results of examinations conducted to obtain conclusions and appropriate treatment.
However, related to the results of FNAB examination obtained from the examination of neck lumps showed benign lumps, not found malignant cells, FNAB results can be in the form of C1-C5 code, where C5 shows a benign FNAB examination results.
From the results of the FNAB that you submit, you are not given any tissue information that was examined in this laboratory from what tissue, whether from the thyroid gland, lymph nodes or from the salivary glands. Therefore, by presenting the results of this FNAB examination to the treating doctor, you and your family can find out what benign lump from the tissue.
