Hey yesterday I found a lump on my 3 year olds neck its about the size of two green peas put together and it is very hard but if I move it it will a little bit it is almost in the back of the neck what could this be Im afraid to know but im going to the doctor today
My 2 1/2 year old recently had a lump on his neck, and I took him to the doctor. It was a swollen lymph node, and the doctor said once they get big, it can take weeks or even months to to down. My son's swollen node was on a muscle so that was the reason it was sticking out so far. Hope that's all it is.
