Dear mother,

a lump that occurs in the neck, mostly due to swollen lymph nodes. Other possibilities include an abscess or a collection of pus in the neck, as well as an accumulation of fat under the skin or a lipoma, but these are all less common. The lymph nodes themselves on the other hand are only one of the many symptoms of a child having an infection, although there are other causes of swollen lymph nodes such as tumors, for example, but less frequently. The infection itself can come from many sources, such as in the case of your child which can be caused by teeth, or lung infection by tuberculosis. Once the infection is treated, the lymph nodes will self-deflate and return to normal. The problem now is finding the cause of the infection. You need to consult again directly with the pediatrician, to conduct further clinical examinations to find out the cause and treatment. Give your child enough fluids and make sure they get enough rest and get nutritious foods. Here we attach an article about enlarged lymph nodes in children. May be useful.
