Lump on 4 year olds back

Sonia - posted on 01/19/2015 ( 3 moms have responded )




Sorry I have been posting a lot but the reason I made this account was because I have been having a lot of problems that need mom advice but I don't need jodi's. Anyway so my daughter has a pretty big lump on her back and I am very worried. I noticed it on Saturday just thinking it was a bite but today i realised it had grown. A lot! I don't want it to be anything like cancer and I do know for sure that it is not a bite. I'm taking her to the hospital tomorrow because she has been complaining that it hurts. Can everyone please pray that it isn't a growth or cancer and if anyone would like updates on it please give support and private message me. It would mean a lot if somebody did.

Sonia, this is a public forum. You don't GET to dictate who responds to your posts. The only person who has been rude here is you because you don't agree with my responses. I don't really care whether you do or you don't, but clearly it is bothering you.

It is highly unlikely this lump is cancer if it has grown like that just overnight. It may be a pimple, boil or abscess, all of which can pop up quite quickly. If it is hurting it is most likely to be something with a build up of fluid or pus and will possibly need draining. Don't try to do it yourself, as this can cause infection, but definitely take her to see a doctor as they will be able to treat it quite easily. But it's probably nothing to get too concerned about.
