About a month ago i noticed two lumps on my sons lower neck almost down to the bottom on the left side. they dont hurt him, at least they dont seam to even when i touch them and he hasnt had any serious infections, only a slight cold. i took him to the doctor a months ago, the day i found them and he said they were swollen lymph nodes, well they still havent went away so i took him in today and he wanted to run blood work. he said the main concern is to rule out cancer. should i be scared to death or is he jumping to the worst case senario?
My daughter too has a lump on her neck. I was told it was a lymph node, no pain or anything. It has stayed the same size for the past year, which is great, usually it will get bigger if it's anything. I can't tell you not too worry, your a mother, your going to do that anyway. Let me know how things go...I'll be thinking of you...Michelle
