Yes, you shoudl be concerned as this is not a normal occurrence. You should take yoru child to th edoctor and let the doctor examine it and determine what it is. It could be nothing but you won;t know until you take your child to the doctor. it also could ne something that requires medical attention.

You should absolutely see a doctor for any lump found anywhere on a child's body. Do not wait, make an appointment immediately. There are many different things that may cause this, and if it is serious, the sooner it is treated the better. If you cannot afford a doctor, find a treatment center where you can take your child.

Chances are it is something benign but do you want to take the risk that it could be something more serious and it was ignored? Take him to the doctor.
