Lump in my neck, kindly suggest remedies

Hi my nephew is 3years old and we noticed a lump on both sides of his nect. We took him to the doctor and we were told that he has TB . ESR report is as follows: 1st hour : 55MM 2nd hour:92MM We have started the medicines 3days back. Today we have found a similar lump in between the legs near the curving part. What re these lumps..Not sure if this lump was there earlier or not. We just noticed it today.Do we have to worry about this. Please advice

Welcome to HCM,
The lump of the neck is Cervical lymphatic gland and many causes of enlargement(local and systemic).TB cant be diagosed only on the basis of ESR.chest x-ray mantoux test,and detailed history are needed for the wt. of the baby is good The possibility of TB is less.
