I have an aunt. I have a lump in front of my neck. What is the cause of the lump?rnrnThanks in advance.

1 Answer:

Hi Ivan. The cause of a lump in front of the neck is the greatest risk caused by an enlarged thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is normally present in the body where it functions to produce thyroid hormones that function in the body's metabolism. The presence of enlargement of this gland can be caused by infection, autoimmune (the body's defense cells mistakenly recognize the body's own cells as enemies), excessive thyroid gland work, especially related to problems in the brain that regulate thyroid hormone work such as in the hypothalamus or in the thyroid gland. pituitary, the presence of a deficiency of certain nutrients such as iodine.

In addition to thyroid problems, possible causes include malignancy, a history of previous trauma, infection, cysts (fluid-filled sacs).

Consult your doctor about your aunt's condition for further information and treatment. Physical examination can help where other tests such as blood tests, ultrasound, biopsy, CT scan, MRI, angiography can also help depending on the doctor's suspicion. What your aunt can do is consult your doctor, especially if there are symptoms such as palpitations, weakness, can't stand heat or cold, increased or decreased appetite, or weight loss or gain. Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
