    As has been said, it’s likely nothing but get it checked for peace of mind and to be sure.

    Take her as soon as you can. Not worth taking the risk of waiting.

    Cheers guys just wasn't sure if they would be like it's nothing you've been told twice and you should have waited on your letter.

    * them, even if they are. You’d never forgive yourself if, * forbid, it’s something you needed to catch earlier.

    Most likely not but do what’s best for yours.

    My girls had that and it was nothing. Would still get it checked to be on the safe side though.

    My daughter has big sticky out ones on her neck. Cervical ones. I just tell her she's an alien.
    Gets them from me, only I've a bit of weight to make mine less visible.
    Wouldn't worry.

    I think it can happen when you’re unwell/congested that your lymph nodes become swollen.

    The one behind my left ear is bigger than the one on my right, I noticed when I was around 16/17 and went to the doctor about it and she just told me to come back if it got any bigger or caused my discomfort, which it never has and that’s 6/7 years ago.

    If its Blocked lymph glands then read this

    http://www.urmc.rochester.edu/encyclopedia/content.aspx?ContentTypeID=90&ContentID=P02044

    Especially

    How is lymphadenopathy treated in a child?
    The treatment of enlarged lymph nodes depends on the cause. Enlarged lymph nodes are often harmless and go away without any treatment. Treatment may include:

    • Antibiotic medicines to treat an underlying bacterial infection, such as strep throat, or ear or skin infections
    • Antibiotic medicines and drainage of the lymph node for infection of a lymph node or small group of nodes
    • A follow-up exam to recheck enlarged nodes after waiting for 3 to 4 weeks
    • Other medicines or procedures to treat other conditions that caused the enlarged nodes
    • Referral to specialists for incision or drainage or more exams, diagnostic tests, and treatment
