Hi, my daughter has a lump on her neck near her right ear that has gotten bigger over night. It was the size of a pea last night and has gotten to the size of a marble by this morning. She is thirteen years old and says her neck is tender. I have been trying to get her to the doctor today, but they have no appointments available. Is it safe to wait the weekend? Should I be worried about it being something serious? Just want to know what a professional would think. Thanks for any information you can give to me or assurance.

Hi
Hey, I actually came across this site because i've found a lump on my neck which im concerned about but then I read your post. I'm 16 and when I was about your daughter's age I had the same thing. It turns out to be hormones and simply that. I still have it and it hasn't grown but just take her to doc's so he can diagnose.
