Hi Dr. Mo here.

How long has the lump been there and is his fever better at all?

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 10 months ago.

As far as this lump, is it getting bigger? Compared to your index finger, how big is it?

Also, is he having body aches, fatigue, sore throat or headache?

Were any blood tests done?
