Customer Question

Just noticed a small seemingly superficial bump on my son's neck when he turns his head in the left side. He has just recently (in January) had a nodule removed indicated to be fibrodipose tissue. Do we need to go in and have this too looked at???

If this nodule looks similar in appearance to the one that was excised in January, you need to have your pediatrician take a look at it, to determine whether or not this needs a biopsy as well. If it looks small, and feels rubbery when you touch it, and is move-able, non-painful, it is likely a normal lymph node. If it gets bigger quickly, like within a week or two, it ought to be looked at. Hope this helps...
