    All good beebs thanks. Scar on his leg about the size of a 20cent piece but nothing else.

    I was more of a wreck cause I noticed it months before and all the specialists said it was harmless and would go away. Then when the surgeon at Sydney children said the word "tumor" I cried in her office for 20minutes about how bad of a mum I was and I should have pushed harder.

    I think the word tumor sounds really bad but apparently it covers a different range of growths that can be harmless, especially in kids as their cells reproduce faster or something.

    This is what doctor told me I am just quoting. In the end she didn't know exactly what it was - just that it was gone and shouldn't come back. Maybe it wasn't exactly a tumor but it was the best word she could come up with???

    Nah tumour is the right word! They don't necessarily need to be cancer, its more about the abnormal growth of cells part.

    How bizarre, which vaccination was it? Would love it know if it was related the component of the vaccination or the actual act of an injection.

    Would be interesting to see what his skin does in relation to scar tissue if he ever gets a piercing or stitches etc.

    I may be wrong here but I remember reading about a vax with a certain component (aluminium?) causing a higher incidence of nodules? Maybe an exacerbated form of this?

    To be accurate the thread title should be changed to a "severe allergic reaction", rather than "a vaccine reaction".

    Thanks for the info. It was the four month shots which apparently is the same as the 2 month shots and the 6 month shots and it only happened once. Unfortunately I can't remember which injection actually went in that spot as he got 2 one in each leg.

    I get keloid scarring really bad which I am not sure if that means anything - must have my skin poor thing.

    Wow Your more knowledgable on vaccines than me. Honestly I should have looked into it more to get a better understanding and be able to explain it better.

    Truthfully this is the first time I have really talked about it except family - was pretty scary especially how big and fast it grew.

    It does make sense to be the aluminium but if it was an ingredient it would have happened after each shot?

    It's hard to say, it could even have been a combination of the injection site getting a nodule and a random bacterial infection? (I'm no dr, just tossing ideas around). It would make sense that if it was an ingredient it would have happened each time.

    The main thing is that he's ok

    I have a lump from the flu shot, (under my arm), apparently very common, more so in pregnant women....much better than the flu though!!! A few family members have had small lumps at the injection site lasting 6-24 months.

    Yes of course, lets not forget that that redness and pain at the site of an Injection is called a "vaccine" reaction by the anti vaccine groups.
