my 5 yr old son developed a big swelling and hard lump on the left side of his neck overnight. It was very painful and he cd not even move his neck . His pediatrican put him on anitbiotics etc and the swelling subsided and so did the pain. The hard lump persists thoguh it is smaller is size and slightly painfult to touch. It has been about 9 days since the probelm started . What cd this be . ? the doctor told me not to worry but i am concerned abt cancers. My son has no other complaints .
