Lumps behind ear, on neck, inner thigh. Is it serious?

My 3 month old has had 3 lumps behind her ear on her neck since she was about 1 month old. The dr told me it was just swollen lymph nodes and not to worry. Just today I noticed another pea sized lump in her groin area near her inner thigh. The lumps on neck have gotten bigger. Could it be something more serious? Should I get a second or third opinion?
