when my son was 3 he had a lump in his foot and they told me they thought it was cancer. and I did the whole jumping to the worst thing that could happen. when they did surgrey thank god but it was just a piece of glass that got stuck and the musles and tissues grew around the glass and formed a lump. so think as + as possiable and every thing will be ok it could just be a lump and no problem. I will pray for you it will be ok.
