Have any of you mothers had a child or heard of another child having an enlarged lymph node on the back of the head? My son has one and it has been there since he was born. The Pediatrician and Family Physician said it is fine as long as it doesn't get larger, and that he will have it for the rest of his life. I can't help but be paranoid because my first cousin was diagnosed with Leukemia at 3 years old, went into remission for it to come back when he was 20 and he passed away when he was 21 years old. The docs just make it sound so common, but my husband is a barber and he cuts a lot of hair and he's never seen it on others before.View Thread
