There Is A Small Bump On The Neck?
I 4 days ago had a toothache in the gums section, then there was like a lump in my gum area. Then soon I realized that there were small lumps in my neck left and right. His toothache was no longer, but the lump was still there. Then my head hurts if I just shake it a little. Why is that?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The symptoms that you experience can occur due to one particular disease, or several diseases that occur together, including:
Mucocele or fluid-filled sac in the oral cavity
Salivary gland stones
Inflammation of the salivary glands
Enlarged lymph nodes
And other possibilities also depend on the results of the examination. Our advice, you should immediately consult your problem with a general practitioner for further examination, by conducting a history, physical examination by looking at the shape of the lump, measuring the size, boundaries, edges, hard-soft, and whether or not pain when pressed. In addition, it is also important to assess whether there are other symptoms that could be a clue, and supporting examinations if necessary. Treatment that you will receive later depends on the results of this examination, including if it turns out you need to be referred to a specialist.
Meanwhile, no need to worry because these conditions are usually harmless, simply compress the lump with a warm compress, do not touch and press, avoid smoking, adequate rest, may consume pain relievers and anti-inflammatory which are sold freely when the pain returns, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
