Does anyone know what this is?

My son(3) has two knots on his neck. I can remember him always having one but now it's two. They are located on the back, kind of closer to the side. They don't seem to bother him.....

  • My son has a small round nodule on his neck in the same spot. His pediatrician said it is just like a benign fatty cyst. It's probably the same thing, but I would mention it to your pediatrician next time you go in. (So you can compare, my son's is about the size of a little green pea, its round and firm located on the left side of his neck, closer to the base of the neck.)
