My grandson who is 6 years old had strep or virus 6 months ago.Then he developed cyst or nogal on back of his neck than got sick again and now has 2 cyst 7 months later. Dr said it's normal for kids to get cyst after and cod or virus etc. I never had this ever happened to my kids when they were little and sick. I know that cyst or a harmless but I have known people to get cancer from cyst or other disorders I'm just afraid that doctor doesn't take blood test or biopsy or ultrasound etc.This is why it's concerning to me. I was always told I have an enlarged thyroid I let it go I said maybe my neck fat which I wasn't ,but I didn't want to be bother with it. I got tired of doctors bugging me . I have blood test done ultrasound done and biopsy done nothing showed that I had Thyroid cancer.My doctor wanted me to have surgery. So I said OK do the one side only and we'll take it from there then he found cancer on my right side and that's where the cancer. I was optimistic and I didn't have cancer. Boy did that change everything I had the other side taken out that didn't have cancer just my right side. I've been cancer free since 2011 but now I have a module on my right side so I had to cancel my neck . Dr. took the ultrasound and he said he don't think nothing of it but now I'm going back next month because he's gotten larger has got me concerned this time I'm going to listen to the doctor. I've been in the medical field for over 25 years and I've seen some great doctors and I seen some terrible doctors. I am sorry if I offended anyone. But that's everywhere. Can someone please give me input on my grandsons cyst on his neck. I am very very concerned. Thanks
