Hello.I am sharing a picture of swollen lymph node around neck.
Enlarged lump on side of neck can occur due to enlarged lymph gland/node .
Lymph node can get enlarged in infection, inflammatory conditions, an abscess, or cancer.This may also occur in Immune or autoimmune disorders that can cause swollen lymph nodes like rheumatoid arthritis and HIV.
Cancers that can cause swollen glands include leukemia, Hodgkin's disease
Other possibility is of lipoma. This is benign tumor and is harmless.
As such a visit to doctor for clinical checkup and evaluation is necessary.
Your doctor can advice blood test and lymph node biopsy to make a diagnose
so u should actully see a big lump that around you neck if you lymph node appear to be swollen? correct?thx
Yes, sometimes lump may not be too big, but it should be palpable by hand .. Please get evaluated from doctor.
should it be appear in red? after i touch the node on my neck it become red
Yes, it may be red to touch , and can be easily palpable.. A clinical diagnosis is very important at this stage. So, please get it evaluated.Take care
