Hierdie knoppie is eintlik 'n klier. Hierdie klier word groter veral wanneer 'n kind van hierdie ouderdom mangel ontsteking of oorontsteling ontwikkel. Daar is geen rede vir kommer nie en die klier sal met tyd kleiner word en verdwyn.

its very common for children to have glands in their necks. especially ones that move around when you touch. they are probably just lymph nodes. check the paediatrician' s response to your question just to be sure, but personally i dont think there is any cause for concern.
