  • It is actually very common in young children. The nodes seem to be bigger or swollen.

  • My sons get swollen when he is getting a cold or something like that. it could be nothing or not, just ask the doctor the next time you are there.

  • Do you have cats? I'm asking because my son had a huge lump under his arm and we took him to the doctor and she said it was from him getting scratched by the cat. A weeks of antibiotics cleared it right up. I would take him to the doctor just to be sure. Good luck.

  • Is the lump painful to him? Could be a fat deposit or lymph node. Ask the nurse.
