default
Posted on Sat, 28 Oct 2017
Question: Hi,
My daughter (2 years old) has something sold and sort of spherical in shape about 2 cm in diameter ( it is not visible on the external skin) but can be felled only by my fingers when i touch her neck, under her skin, exactly in her central right neck.
I recognized it only 2 days ago.
What do you think is it? And what is your advice?

Brief Answer:
Lipoma/ epidermoid cyst/ enlarged lymph node, keep under observation

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and understand your concern.
According to your complaints it could be a lipoma or epidermoid cyst or an enlarged lymph node.
Keep it under observation.
If it grows in size or shows symptoms of pain or inflammation consult a doctor.
Otherwise no need to worry as mostly these are benign lesions.
