My 6 Yr Old Has Lump In the Side of His Neck ....

Like I mentioned, my 6 yr. old son has a lump about the size of a lima bean that is hard on the side of his neck. Just below is right ear. I noticed it before about 6 months ago and it was the size of a pea, you could say it has grown. My son has not been sick in any way, not a cough or cold. He does breath really deeply and he snores really bad. He is going to see the doctor tomorrow,but I would like to know what to say and wondering what this might be Confused

Thanks AManda

BTW: the lump is NOT soft to the touch it does feel hard....

hmmm it seems to me like a swollen lymph node. That is were a lymph node is. You should get it checked.

What happened?
I was wondering what your doctor said? My daughter has one that sounds similar and am concerned that it could be serious.
