The most common probable cause for a lump mentioned in a 7 year old would be a lymph node to be ruled our by searching for infections in the organs around the node or a Neurofibroma a benign swelling in the nerve either are not dangerous. But keen observation over the lesion has to be kept . If there is any sudden increase in the size of the lump then you may have to consult the surgeon as soon as possible
