my son is 2 years old and well he has always had a small pea or alittle largersized lump on the side of his neck since I can remember. Its on the right side I think its his lymp node well anywaysI was reading about them online and they say it could be leukimia... well ofcourse like any other mom I am now sitting here at 10 at night and freaking out that hes got cancer. I was wondering if any other moms on here had there kids have this and what the outcome was. Thanks moms!

My son gets random lumps...but it's always a gland. It goes away pretty quick. If your son's doesn't go away, I would have the doctor check it.

They only signal leukemia if they are hard and don't move.

If you can move them around, they are fine.

Julia has two of them, they are harmless. They are pretty common.

i doubt it is cancer since the lump has been there as long as you can remember . my niece is 14 and she has had one on each side all her life it just means that they are bigger than other kids if the doctor thought it was an issue he would have said something, everything you rread doesnt mean your child has it a friend of mine is like that but she takes trips to the emergency room everytime she goes to webmd.com because she believes that her daughter has something new
