Lymph node appeared on my baby's neck when he was 3-4months old. Took him to a paediatrician and he said its nothing to worry about unless it grows bigger in size. He is now 20 months old and it's still there though still same size. Is there anything to be worried about?
It should not give you concern since your doctor says so just be watchful should Incase it gets bigger
Lymph nodes are normal part of the body structures that hep produce and at times store some of the white blood cells (lymphocytes) and antibodies that help the body fight against infections and foreign bodies it is exposed to. When there is infection in the body, they work harder to produce more of these foot soldiers so they may increase in size, feel hot and/or painful to touch.....As soon as the infection is treated, they go back to normal size. They can also increase in some cases of cancers
