I've just noticed a grape sized lump on dds thigh. It's moveable and doesn't seem to hurt her or be causing any discomfort. She had her men b vaccine there last week just wondering if anyone else has had similar with their children? She's 18 weeks old. Thanks

Hi vegmum, my little man had the very same thing after men b vaccination, it was slightly red too, it went away after about 6/7 weeks, it didn't seem to cause him any discomfort at all, hope this helps

Thanks, yes it helps, just after reassurance I suppose as I just noticed it tonight. I'll probably ring the Drs tomorrow to get it checked just to be on the safe side.

Absolutely no harm to get them to check, I got the nurse to have a look at ds and she reassured me it's normal, I think she said it's like a fatty deposit from the injection, definitely do get your doctors reassurance, you'll feel so much better.
