Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Dermoid cyst is a normal thing and common in this area.
Removal procedure is just a work 15 minute and recovery is within 3-5 days.
Nothing to worry at all , wait as your doctor advised you.
Two tiny lymph nodes are also common , so don't worry.
Child is little so wait.
Good luck.
