He will not listen to his father, could any of this be related to the fall or is it typical 10 yr old

ENT Specialist 's  Response
As he fell in 2007 and this neck swelling appeared in 2011, I think there will be no relation between this swelling and a past injury. So, don't think about this. You should consult to an ENT specialist for this neck swelling. It can be due to infection in the parotid gland ( a salivary gland situated bellow the ear). Have a nice day!
