Question about lymph nodes

Postby Kellmma » Mon Mar 05, 2012 12:08 pm


My DS is 13 months and has a large (about 1") lymph nodes behind his left ear that has been there for almost 3 weeks. He also has 2 smaller nodes below that that are around 5mm and 7 mm that he has had since around 8 months and 12 months respectively. I've had him checked out by his pediatrician (for the 2 smaller nodes) and by a pediatric ENT (I'm not sure he felt the larger node as the baby was fussy and squirming). He seems healthy and they say just to watch them but it's disturbing that they won't go down and more keep popping up :?

Has anyone experienced this? The nodes that won't go away... I've researched it like crazy but would love to hear real life stories.

Thanks for reading!
