How can lumps be managed?
Q: My four years old had lumps on his neck two years back. We consulted a doctor who told us that it was due to lack of calcium. Now, we have observed more lumps. Lumps are very soft. Are lumps an early sign of cancer? How can lumps be managed?
A:Lumps in the neck are unlikely to be due to calcium deficiency. They are probably due to enlarged lymph nodes, which can happen in many illnesses. Your child should be examined and undergo a few tests to find the cause of these lumps. Treatment would depend upon the diagnosis.
