Welcome to Healthcare Magic

Since when does your child have the lump. What was the diagnosis the Doctor's made of it. Is it a Branchial cyst. The cold could have caused a block in his ear tube and that may be the reason he is playing with his ear, indicating fluid in his right ear. Some lumps would require surgery to resolve, kindly provide the diagnosis made by his Doctor.
