Depends: You must know about the Gaussian bell curve. The average is 37.0 Centigrade or 98.6 Fahrenheit.

My baby is 2weeks old. I noticed a round lump or nodes like in her tummy below the chest above the tummy.. is it usually serious?
Difficult to guess: It's difficult to guess what the round lump in your 2 week old baby's tummy might be without being able to examine her. I'm assuming she has no other symptoms. While it may be that she has a ventral hernia, only her pediatrician would really be able to diagnose it. She should have a 2 week exam, and at that visit her doctor can give you more information about whether it's serious or not. ...Read more

The : The description and history you have given for the lump sounds consistent with a blocked milk duct. If it is a blocked milk duct it may be relieved by applying warm compresses. You can also gently massage the area to see if anything comes out. If you see a pasty/cheesy substance come out, it is likely consolidated breast milk. There are other reasons to have a breast lump however such as infection, breast cyst, and fibroadenoma. In any case you should have your doctor take a look to make sure there isnâ€™t anything else to be done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The lump could be part of a benign goiter or cyst, but you need to check for something more serious. ...Read more
