Question: Small lump in daughter's neck

 kronos - Wed Dec 07, 2005 8:12 pm

My 5 year old daughter has a small lump in her neck that she says slightly hurts when you rub it. I am taking her to the doctor tomorrow, but am very worried. What could this be?

Well, it depends on its exact site, but most frequently it is an enlarged lymph node or gland.
Another possibility is it could be an enlarged salivary gland.
