Q.

Growth

I found a small growth on my 3 year old daughters'' leg. It is still small, however I am very concerned.
It moves around under the skin and she is not complaining of pain. Should I be concerned?

This may be a swollen lymph gland.If it is you should know what is causing the gland to be enlarged. It would be best to ask your doctor to see her just to be sure.
