We just noticed this weekend that dd#3 has a weird bump on the back of her head. It is about the size of the pea and is on the back of her head, above and slightly to the right of the top cervical vertebra. I can move it slightly, it feals almost like a cyst. Has anyone heard of something like this? Should I be worried?

If anyone has every seen somthing like this, can yo utell me about it, please?

Yep, I know all about it. Scared the heck out of me when I noticed them in my little grandson. He had several. Turned out they are some lymph nodules that are predominant in little kids and will go down by a certain age.

I never noticed them in my own kids and I raised 3 of them. But that's what it is. Nothing to worry about.

Don't ask me when they go down because he is two now and I've forgotten to check them out in a while. Might be gone....
