Child has tiny hard lump on the knee that is movable, pains only on pressing, another unmovable lump behind ear. Worrisome?
my son is 3 and i noticed he has a tiny hard lump (like a piece of gravel only maybe 5mm wide) on the top left side of his knee that i can move around when pushed it seems to only bug him when being moved around and he also has another small lump on the back of his ear agian very tiny but this one doesnt move should i be concerned?
Hi Tiny hard lump of 5mm at the age of 3 is not of much concern. It could be a small cyst or lipoma,a fat swelling. It is better to show him to a dermatologist/surgeon. Nothing to worry Wish him good health Regards
