son, five, has a lump. location: under ear, like on jawline. it's on top of that big fat neck muscle. it's almost perfectly round like a button. hard as a rock, not really wiggly, only hurts when poked hard. approx size/thickness of say a peanut M&M?
I called nurseline to decide whether it was calm down and goto normal doctor in the morning or freak out and goto ER important. she was neither friendly nor helpful.
A lump on my babies neck is not something I am ok waiting out or waiting to see what happens. I will know what it is by this time tomorrow come hell or high water.
thoughts, ideas, etc? if it's a lymph node is that bad or good?
