Lump On Newborn Babies Back Shoulder
My 2 month old baby has a hard lump on her upper back, between the shoulder blade and the spine. I'm wondering if you could possibly help me?
But you MUST consult your baby's PEDIATRICIAN ASAP or go to the Walk In Unit of a good General Hospital or preferably Children's hospital!
Good luck. ....hope this helps...
