Painless swelling in neck. Taking antibiotics. Difficulty breathing
my fiance has a painless swelling on side of neck , took antibiotics for 2 weeks never missing a dose, no improvement. scheduled to have 3 more stents put in (3 existing cardiac, new will be 2 iliac & 1 aorta ) past 2 days he has been complaining of difficulty breathing, he says it feels like a broken rib. we know its not that because he has been laying in bed for over a week. ice makes the swelling in neck move over on neck.
Please let me know patients age and complete medical history.
What was the indication of putting stents.
For neck swelling FNAC test and physical examination should be done. Ultrasound/CT/MRI may also be needed depending upon the FNAC result
