In brief: Midline swelling?

If the lump is in the midline it may be remnant of thyroid development.
It is known as thyroglossal cyst.If this be the case see your pediatrician and discuss the problem with him. If the lump is on the side of the neck it may be a lymph gland resulting from a old or upper respiratory infection. Again see your doctor for further evaluation.
