The website is telling me you got back to me, but I can't see your reply for some reason. Could you try typing it in again?

I will try sending my answer again:

The best thing to do is to find out what this mass is: an infection needing antibiotics, a benign lesion that is going to go away on its own, a tumor that needs to be removed. FNA, fine needle aspiration is the best way to do that. A small fine needle is inserted to get cells from the mass to examine under a microscope. Once we know what this is, we know the best treatment. If it starts to bleed or ooze, if it starts to bother him, if it is growing, I would get it checked out.

Hope this goes through! Let me know what else I can answer.
