Dear Ms Howe-Nicola

I would like a few more details before i comment. How big is the lump, is it possible to post a picture as that would really make it easy to answer. Infants are prone to having small swellings related to the blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. These are common and most of them do not need any treatment. However, before i can offer an opinion would like the details of the lump and also picture if possible.
