Hello, Mrs. Ayu
The complaint of a movable lump may resemble the characteristics of swollen lymph nodes, but it can also be caused by other medical conditions that have similar symptoms. Therefore, to be sure, doctors need to first conduct an assessment of your child, so that the doctor can dig up more information through a series of health checks.
Below are some of the medical conditions that can cause movable, soft neck lumps to appear
Enlarged lymph nodes, this condition occurs when the body's lymph nodes try to produce more immune system than usual, which is usually when they are experiencing an infection. This enlargement occurs in the neck area, behind the ears, chin, armpits, groin, and back of the head. Lipoma is an abnormal growth of fatty tissue. However, this condition is generally not dangerous, it only disturbs the appearance if the size is large enough. Cyst, which is the formation of abnormal tissue in the form of a pocket, so that when you feel you feel a clear border with normal tissue, the cyst can feel soft if it contains fluid but can also contain more. on when the contents are in another network. Boils, are inflammation of the hair follicles caused by a tumor infection. The conditions above are just a possibility, and it does not rule out if it turns out that what your child is experiencing is different. That is why Ibu Ayu is advised to take her child to a pediatrician directly because the handling of each of these conditions is different even though the symptoms are similar.
