I'm concerned about finding a lump in little ones neck dr says it's raised lymph nodes and she found another 2. She has been unwell with one thing and another throughout December- the dr says to return in 2 weeks to have them examined and potentially have blood tests if they have not gone. Now I have the worry for two weeks what it could be- any body else experienced this ??

Exactly this with my 6 year old right now. Gp said he could feel 3 on the right side that were firm. He said I could wait 2 weeks for them to go down or refer for a blood test. I thought the blood test would be quicker (it wasn’t!!). He had tonsilitis at the time. They went down within a few days - had a friend who’s a dr examine him and said he couldn’t feel anything. Saw another gp 2 weeks later as tonsilitis was back who didn’t seem concerned as there was an infection!
Blood test is next week. Nodes are down but it’s the fact he said they were firm that’s worried me.
Is she unwell at the mo? I read they come up when unwell and can take weeks to go down, sometimes even longer
