Hi guys! This is my first post ever in a chatroom, so please forgive me if I don't do this right!
I am a 31 year old mom of four children, ages 12, 9, 6 and 9. About a year ago, my (then 2 year old) daughter developed a lump on the right side of her neck, about the size of a pea. It moves around when you touch it and usually doesn't hurt. I did take her to the doctor and her pediatrician said that I should not be concerned but to just watch it and make sure it doesn't grow or become lodged anywhere. :S Now, she has an even larger one on the left side of her neck and when I touch it, she says it hurts. She is three, so I cannot really ask her if she had any other symptoms, so I don't know if I should worry or continue to just watch it. The only other symptom I think is odd is that her urine appears oily, like when you mix oil and water. (She is potty trained).
Has anyone esle experienced anything like this? I don't really want to check out too much on the internet because it can be anything from a cold to cancer and I don't want to freak out for nothing.
Welcome to JM! I would take her back to the dr's and ask to be referred to a specialist. I would not settle for just watching it. I understand what you are saying about searching on the internet, but I would look on somewhere like webMD and get some type of idea as to what might be going on and then take it from there.
