Q.

PTB

My Granddaughter is on treatment for PTB. Now worried becuase she is having a small lump on her eardrum and below the right ear but not painful. Picking up weight very slow, she is 6months but weighs 5kg. Cries when supporting her to sit. Please help. Will the lumps dissappear? Will she be able to pick up weight? Will she develop like any other child? She is eating very well and active that is kicking, giggling.

I am concerned about this lump, but I cannot advise you what it is without being able to see your granddaughter. It would be best if she could be seen by her doctor. It is important to know exactly what the cause is.Ask about her weight at the same time.
