My 19 mo. Old has small lump on right side of neck, hard but slippery. Healthy, bit of allergies, had a bug bite close to that area a few days ago.

I have a small lump on the left side of neck and kind of behind my left ear. Its not an abscess or a pimple. Quite firm like a bone. It hurts at times?
Possibly lymph node?: Have lymph nodes throughout our bodies to protect us. Some are near surface of skin and you can feel. If you've had an ear infection recently or possibly scratched your scalp nearby the node could have started to swell as it pumped out lymphocytes. If it doesn't go down in a few weeks go see your doc. ...Read more
Small pea sized lump on side of neck. Somewhat movable can move from side to side. Terrified it's cancer! In the spot where lymphnodes are.
Need to examine: Do you have lesions in your scalp, or face? Even bad dandruff or pimples on the face may lead to enlargement of local lymph nodes. If you have no lesions on the scalp and/or face, you can wait to see what happens. It is not likely that you have cancer, but if the node persists for more than two weeks, it would be prudent to consult your doctor. ...Read more
Have small lump on side of neck. My total protein is 8.7 and albumin is 5.2. My CRP is. 95. Ldh is normal. Should I be concerned about lyphomia.
Unlikely: Lymphoma would cause an inflammatory response in your immune system, and your CRP would be elevated. Ldh, protein, and Albumin tell me your nutritional status is stable. If your lump gets larger, go see your doctor. It may be a lymph node and the only real way to r/o bad things is with a biopsy, but at this point, I would watch and wait. ...Read more

See your doctor. ...Read more

Access vs lymph node: If it is red and hot, then it may be an abscess or infection. It could also be a lymph node. If you have any head cold symptoms, this could just be a reactive lymph node, which is the body's way of gathering white blood cells to fight the infection. If you are feeling otherwise well, then it should be checked out, with possible labs, imaging and/or a biopsy. ...Read more

Right side of neck bulges out. Not a small lump like a swollen node. The side of the neck actually bulges out. Slight discomfort. Muscle? Tumor?
Could be trapped air: This may sound crazy but I've seen something like this before.
