i just found about 2 weeks a lump which appears to me to be a lymph node in her groin, it is hard but movable and doesn't appear to hurt her, but it is growing and i found another small node next to it getting bigger as well. she is not sick and hasn't been at all or hurt in any way. she does have weird mild fevers that have been on and off for about a month, we have a dr appt coming up, just trying to see if anyone else has seen this before and to try to ease my mind from dr google.

thank you!

That sounds like a good plan. If they get bigger, they will def want to see her though. If you don't like how things are going, ask to see a specialist. They should give you a referral if you want one. Good luck to you and your daughter.

well we had one visit to the ped and her so far answer is to wait 2 more weeks and see if they grow any more or if any new ones appear. we talked about everything it could possibly be from and her thoughts so far are leaning towards a bad diaper rash but that was over a month ago, so I'm not on that page. i don't over feel them or push or squeeze, i will at most feel morning then night to see if any change has occurred through the day. we just got up a bit ago and i felt and now there is 2 small ones and the other 2 are a little larger and are getting harder to the feel. there next thing to try is antibiodics, and we all know how hard it is to get a 1 year old to take medicine.. I'm calling in their office call center to see if the doc will just perscribe her meds without coming in again.

still freaking out! and i don't get why they are growing so quick! she is a pretty normal 1 year old and not sick or acting "sickly".

hope they will go away or at least know why they are there and growing!

Stop googling first of all. That will NOT help. When is your doctor appointment? If you did not have one scheduled specifically for this, I would tell you to get your baby in asap. In the meantime, keep an eye on all of them. If they increase in size, keep track. Any change in color, if they hurt etc. BUT, don't obsess. Don't keep touching them to the point of irritating them or squeeze them. When you made the appointment, did you tell them specifically what you were finding?
