My son has a raised hard lump/bump below the neck. It has now turned green like a bruise (after 2 months). It does not cause pain but irritating. He has not been sick or have any other symptoms. What could this be? I have made him an appointment with our general practioner but should I have him see a dermotalogist or some other kind of doctor? Thanks in advance!
