The swelling you have on neck are the infected lymph nodes which takes 4 to 6 months to reduce in size with treatment...sometimes it paradoxically increase in size when started medicines....so not to worry...no surgery needed as it can become fistula then..

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Forcox kit is for tuberculosis and it needs to be taken as long as your doctor has prescribed you what ever happens.
But what tumor are you talking about?
I didn't quite understand your question.
Kindly consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
