Hard lump on baby's neck

I just noticed that my 8 month old baby girl as a lump on the back of her neck.  It is very hard and doesn't move, it doesn't seem to bother her.  She is happy and seems normal, should i be worried or take her into the doctor?

My daughter had the the same thing right behind her left ear, just appeared out of nowhere one day, no pain or anything with it.  No clue what it was we didn't take her in just let it go, it went away after about a month or so.  She's got an appointment this week and we are going to talk to her doctor about it,  I wouldn't worry about it but take her in to get it looked at if for anything else to ease your mind
