I am scheduling an appointment for my son to be seen, but in the mean time I thought I would ask if anyone has any experience with a persistently enlarged neck lymph node.
I noticed it nearly 3 months ago. My 3 year old has an M&M, less than 2 centimeter, size lymph node on the side of his neck. It moves around beneath my finger when I touch it and feels kind of rubbery. It's been there for nearly 3 months now, and I have bothered it every day since, hoping it would go down (I might be the reason it's sticking around..). He hasn't been sick for a very long time. He does get occasional cat scratches and had a lot of bug bites before I noticed the lymph node.
I honestly don't know if it's always been enlarged because I only noticed it when I had my hand on his neck one night.
He's active, has a healthy appetite, and has even gained a pound recently.
Any experience? It freaks me out and has caused a lot of worry.
