my daughter has a lump on the right side of her neck that just came up today
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. A lump on the neck in a child is a very common finding. It can be associated with a mild cold, allergies and other things. This symptom would become concerning if if kept growing, was firmly planted and immobile, and/or red, warm, and tender. If any of these symptoms occur, a visit to your pediatric health care professional is advisable.
