Hi there -

Why is she afraid to go to a doc? In the worst case scenario, the earlier, the better. In the best case, she stops worrying and wastes less time.

That said, sounds like a gland/lymph node to me. I have one on my neck that I can feel when I get sick or really tired or stressed. I also freaked the first time I felt it, and my doc said as long as it goes away, you are fine. Just tell mom to go to the doc, tell him about it, rule out any infections, and move on with relief.

Good luck.
