18 month old daughter with large lumps above ears..
Recently, a few days ago, I noticed large lumps on my 18 month old's head, right above her ears. She was getting very frequent ear infections, especially in her right ear where the lump is actually larger than the other.. She communicates, but she still isn't talking yet, and she constantly bats her ears with her hand, pulls her hair where the knots are, and bangs her head on the walls and on the ground occasionally. I'm taking her to the emergency room tomorrow because I don't have insurance until October, but I would really like some suggestions from all of you. She's my only child, and cancer runs in both sides of my family. Advice would be very appreciated, and thanks for your time..
