Thanks sir
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 1 year ago

I understand your anxiety.

Swallowing a single cherry pit is unlikely to cause any harm.

If large quantity is taken, then it may cause problem.

Please do not worry.

I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

You can keep an eye.
