  • I would call and ask if they want to see the baby.

  • go get it checked. my dd had 2 of them, they went away. her doctor said it was nothing to worry about, i dont remember what she said, this was almost 20yrs ago. BUT, go get it checked.

  • It sounds like a lymph node. My DS has had one for a long time and I just ignore it. I'm not telling you what to do, but I tend to think (being a nurse) that if there's something wrong there will be other symptoms.
