YES! They run on my DH's side of the family. Fil has one, my DH has several, and my youngest son has them. The ENT was very gung ho about wanting to remove it. However, my DH and FIL have never had issues with theirs. I call it his, "puss hole." Every once in a while, he says it feels itchy, and then he kind of pushes around it and, "puss" comes out and then everything is fine again. It doesn't seem to bother my son, nothing has come out of his, I don't want to mess with it and accidentally get it infected. I would just leave it alone and not draw any attn to it to your DS, so he doesn't pick at it unneccesarily.
