DS has a lump on his neck?

It doesn't seem to bother him but it looks weird. It is located just under his ear on his right side. It is about the size of 2 peas put together and it moves up and down. Looked on line and said something about glands or lympnodes but I am unsure. Any advice or help?

  • I would take him to see a doctor. It could be nothing, an infection, or it could be something more serious. Better to be safe than sorry.

  • I would be 99% sure that these are swollen lymph nodes. I used to get them all the time when I was a child. This is his immune system fighting off a virus or infection. Take him to the doctor in case he needs antibiotics.
