Unhappy Swollen Glands in a 2 1/2 year old

Ok so we finally cut my sons hair 2 1/2 weeks ago it was really long and curly. We noticed a bump on the back of his neck near his hair line. We thought maybe he bumped his head or something so we didnt think anything of it. Well I noiced the next day or two that it did not go away and that if you actually felt around you could fill one more on the same side and the other side had 2 as well. My mother told me to give it a week or so to see if they go away since they were not bothering him at all. So yesterday I went to the doctor and they told me that he has swollen glands he also has some in his groin area. They did a strep test and it came back negative his ears look fine. He is not sick so what could they be from? I did some research myself and they said from so many different types of things and one was Cancer so of course I am freaking out. Has anybody been thru this? Can anybody tell me what they think it might be from? Please I am so worried the doctor said after three days if they do not go down with warm cloths on his neck at night he will do a blood test. They have been there for almost 3 weeks and have only got bigger and there have been more to appear. Thank You for your time if you know anything that will help ease my mind please respond Thanks

Re: Swollen Glands in a 2 1/2 year old

He probably just has a little virus or small infection in his body. Their young immune systems react to everything and I wouldn't worry too much. My oldest son, who is now 42, had huge lymph nodes in his neck and he was pale and I worried so. His was mostly due to his tonsils. We always imagine the worst and thank goodness, it's usually not the case. If the Dr. wants to do blood tests, have them done to ease your mind. I'm sure everything will be ok. Keep us posted

I know it's been awhile since you posted this. I am now going through the same issues with my 2 year old son. He has no other symptoms but these swollen lymph nodes. Would you share what happened in your situation?

Thank you,
