Just a lymph node?

I was just rubbing my 19 month olds back and neck trying to get him to fall asleep like I do every day and I felt a lump. Immediate panic of course so I got him a dr's appt. for later this afternoon. It's a little bigger than a pea and it rolls around. I keep telling myself it's just a lymph node and nothing to worry about but I remember before I got my tonsils out at 16 I had lymph nodes swollen in my neck and they were hard and didn't move.
Can anyone set my mind at ease because waiting until the appt. is like torture.

  • I'm sure it's nothing to worry over, but better to be safe than sorry, and u did the right thing by calling to get him in.
