2 year old kid has marble size lump in the left side of his neck.

My 2 year old son has marble size lump in the left side of his neck about a marble size. Finished anitbiotic today and it hasn t changed at all. I touch it and he never says it hurts. Do you think i could be cancer??? He usually is up really early and lately hasn t wanted to get up, but after he is up he is pretty good. He seems fine other wise.

I have a lump on the right side of my neck. Its not near the lymph nodes. It s not a cyst that would be a ingrown hair or anthing like that. It startes out the size of a pea, now its the size of a marble after 3-4 years. There is no pain, but I m concerned that the muscle may start being effected. Its really under the skin. Now I ve locate another one on the other side right below my left ear. Should I have DR remove?

My 6 yr old grandson came to me with a small lump on the front right side (his left) of his neck. Its the size of a small marble. Its painful to the touch but not otherwise. It is more pronounced when he lifts his head, his throat doesn t hurt, no pain in swallowing, he hasn t been sick in quite awhile, no cuts or bites have been present. Seems to be eating normally for his age. His parents aren t aware of it yet so I have no idea how long its been there. What could it be in a child his age? Should we be worried?
