    Scared!! 7 year old getting lymph node biopsy.

    My 7 years old son is getting a lymph node biopsied in his neck. I'm very scared. It is like an inch big, hard, moveable and doesn't hurt him. I've been reading online and I just scared myself to death. His pediatrician wasn't at all concerned. But his dentist was. By the way my sons dentist is the one that first noticed it in February. She told me to take him to the Dr. So I did they did blood test and they came back normal. Again 6 months later at his dentist appointment the dentist again pointed it out. She then insisted I go again and have him checked out. So I did and again his Dr. Said it was nothing that all kids get them. But I insisted he refer me to an ENT. So he did. And he wants to biopsy it to be 100% sure. he said 90% of the time its nothing. I dont know if he just told me that so i wouldnt worry. Since he does want to do the biopsy this monday October 5. So fast to me. My question that I forgot to ask is what are the side effects of getting a lymph node removed. I read it can cause lymphedema. I'm just scared it will do him more harm than good. I don't know what to do. Please someone help. I forgot to mention when he was 2 he had an abscess drained on that same side of his neck. Didn't find anything bad. I'm just so scared it can be lymphoma. Or something serious. Please helphelp asap.
