Exclamation Lump on 6yr olds neck for three years.

My 6 year old daughter has had a lump on the side of her neck about the size of a dime for three years now. It started out a little smaller than it is now. I mentioned it to the doctor right around the time I first saw it, but haven't asked since because he wasn't concerned. But now she is complaining and crying about neck pain. She says the pain is all around the back of her neck, not directly where the lump is. The lump is soft, but does not move and can't be seen unless she tilts her head to the right. Is this something that I should bring up to her doctor again? I am concerned that he won't believe that it has been there for 3 years because I haven't mentioned it since then. I also am wondering if this lump is in a normal spot and is a normal size?

Took her to the doctor today. He is sending her to a surgeon to rule out lymphoma.

Surgeon has scheduled an open biopsy... Will receive results 4 days after.

I'm sorry that your daughter has to go through that! Does she have any other symptoms? I hope that everything turns out ok. Please post again when you get the results.

Re: Lump on 6yr olds neck for three years.

She has a very mild rash, that I think may be eczema near the lump. It's located on upper back/neck. She also is very itchy. No weight loss, no fevers. She has been acting up and very moody for the past month, which I think is due to being overly tired. Thank you for responding. I will post results around the middle of next month after procedure.

I took her yesterday for blood tests, hemoglobin is low, but not anemic.

I have a nephew who had lymphoma (much older than your daughter) and the lump he had was huge! Maybe its different for an adult than for a chid. It seems like she would be running fevers, but its good that you are getting it checked out. Its hard when they are so little.
