Pediatrician, Surgery 's  Response
Many thanks for consultation.
if you could take a picture of the lesion it is much easier to be more accurate .
the most common cause of this is due yo lymph nodes glands which can get enlarge due to infection in the throat or tonsillitis.
It can be due to poor dental hygiene.
if problems persist then follow up with local pediatric physician for further evaluation and management.
