Earlier this month I noticed a pea sized lump, a bit bluish in color on my baby's chest. I decided to keep my eye on it...and knowing her 2 month "well baby" check up was on the 9th, I would have her pediatrician take a look at it. Turns out shes no longer covered under MY insurance and hers has not gone through yet (added to our blue shield family plan). Today, I googled, "small bluish bump on infants chest" and get results for a cancer called Neuroblastoma. It affects many children under 5 and spreads quickly it sounds like. I am going to see if her dr will see her on Monday (and just pay for the visit out of pocket). I am so scared now. Anyone else see such a thing on their own baby, that WASNT this cancer? Anything to put my mind at ease through the weekend would be great. I am very concerned and feel so helpless that she hasnt been seen.Answer Question
