Treatment For Bumps On The Head And Does Not Hurt When Pressed?
Hello, I am only 18 years old. So like this, my head has a pretty large lump like a scalp, the lump when held / press doesn’t hurt, the bump is sliding, initially at the bottom of the head or top of the neck, then on the side of the head, and now it is in the middle of the head, guess what is it ?? danger or not ?? please explain.
Hello Ekakharisma, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Previously the doctor needed information about the lump, how long had your complaint felt, what was the color of the lump and was it getting bigger, or was it easy to bleed? Are there other complaints such as cough, runny nose, painful swallowing, fever or other complaints?
Some causes of the lump that you feel include:
Lipoma (abnormal growth of fat tissue)
Lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes)
Other tumors on the body (pilomatrixoma)
Lumps that appear on the body can be caused by abnormal growth of body cells, infection of the skin, or due to enlargement of the lymph nodes. You should be advised to consult with a specialist surgeon because it requires a direct physical examination of the lump or other investigations such as Ultrasound or biopsy. We recommend that you immediately go to the nearest health facility, especially if the lump is getting bigger and bigger, pain, bleeding easily, or there is a significant weight loss.
Some things you can do for now include:
Avoid scratching, pressing or trying to remove the lump by force
Adequate rest and consumption of nutritious foods
Consuming enough water
Avoid smoking or consuming alcohol
If it causes discomfort or pain, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol
Hopefully this information can be useful. thanks.
