Specifically an occipital lymph node, totally normal! the occipital nodes drain the scalp area, so any time you have a scalp injury or irritation they grow in response to it. With babies it doesnt take much to make them big, just laying down a lot lets particles get on their scalp which caused the nodes to grow.

Last month I had a pea-sized bump on my neck. Now it has been a bit smaller. It doesn't hurt but I hasn't gone away. Is it serious?
Unlikely: Lymph nodes are common in the neck area, as long as they are very tiny, less than 1/2 cm. If they increase in size, they need to be looked at. Any swelling that increases in size over a 1- 2 week period needs assessment. In your case, you stated that it got smaller, hence my comment above. If in doubt, would still talk to your doctor and have it seen and felt. Better to be safe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lesion on tongue: It could be an inflamed taste bud. Anything that is inflamed will turn brown due to the smoking itself. I would have an ENT check it to make sure it is nothing. Do not worry, it does not seem that big by your description. If you need larger removal, worst case scenario, it may not affect your speech and swallowing. The sooner your check it the sooner you will not worry about it. Feel better! ...Read more
