Welcome to Healthcare Magic forum.
Lymph nodes are a common occurence during childhood and can be due to recurrent infections, eczema, or skin conditions, allergy, chronic inflammation etc.If unaccompanied by other significant symptoms like weight loss, failure to thrive , bleeding, fever etc cancer is not usually suspected.
Your blood reports suggest high eosinophil counts and lymphocyte counts which most commonly suggest either a worm infestation, allergy or a chronic bacterial infection which should resolve with appropriate treatment.
If the diagnosis is unclear a simple fine needle aspiration or biopsy of the lymph nodes (if palpable) can be done to rule out infection or cancer or any such pathology based on the microscopic findings of the lymph node.
Also a blood smear done with the complete blood counts should be able to differentiate cancer cells from normal cells.
So please get it further evaluated by your doctor before coming to any conclusion.
Wish you & your baby good health.
