Swollen lymph modes in children is very common and can be from many things including an infection or virus and allergies. Lymph nodes on the neck can be from ear aches/infections, sore throats, runny noses, loose teeth ect... Also lymph nodes may stay swollen long after the infection/problem that caused them to enlarge has resolved. Take him/her to the doctor for an avaluation to make sure he/she doesnt need any medication.

Answer . I have this exact same problem- I have a lump on my head behind my right ear and I recently noticed another lump on my actual head also on the right side.\n. \nIf… we have the same problem, and from searching on the internet, lots of other people seem to have it too, then I doubt it is serious.\n. \nWhen my doctor examined the one behind my ear he told me it was only a swollen lymph node. I might go back soon though, as I have had it for a long time now (6 months to a year possibly).\n. \nGood luck! I'm sure it will be ok.
Could be anything. Could be a muscle knot, could be a cyst, could be a benign growth of tissue, could be worse. Could be something else. Get to a doctor. You need someone with… experience to examine it. Answer It could be a bone spur.
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nThey can be mineral deposits from your body (mine were caused by caffine) or something more serious; See you doctor.\n. \n. \n= Answer ==\n. …\nThey could be swollen lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are grouped together along lymph vessels throughout the body. There are a few places in the neck that have a cluster of these nodes. If you've been sick recently, then they are more than likely swollen lymph nodes. \n. \nThese nodes serve to filter out toxins and infection as these things circulate through the body. If a great deal of immune waste is filtered through one particular area, that area becomes congested with filtered material. This presents as lumps along a chain, because these nodes are along a lymph vessel pathway. These nodules will dissappear in time, no treatments needed. If you want to speed things up, you can look on the internet for lymph massage techniques, in which you can strip the congestion out by stroking the area in the direction of natural lymph flow. \n. \nIf you have not been sick lately, then it's important to get this looked at. There are other possibilities, but don't worry yourself...this is a very common finding.
probably an enlarged lymph node caused by an infection, a malignant tumor, or in really rare cases by cancer. I'm not a medical expert though so definitely get it checked out …by your doctor.

Answer It could be anything but most commonly it is a lymph node. This would be right under where your jaw hinges. It may (or may not) feel hard, warm to the touch or painful.… If it lasts for more than two weeks you ought to call your doctor. Generally, your lymph nodes (sometimes just one though) will swell when you are sick or fighting off an illness. A lot of your immune response is produced in them. You have lymph nodes on the sides of your neck, in your armpits and in your groin. Hope this helps!it's just ma neck no were else x
This sounds like a swollen lymph node. You may have an infectionsomewhere in your head or neck. The node is making a large numberof lymphocytes to fight off whatever you have …been infected by. Seea doctor if it doesn't get smaller soon.
