Customer Question

My grandson is 2 weeks old and is being fully breastfed, he appears to have a cyst??? under his tongue which does not appear to be affecting him, he is feeding well and gaining weight very well. His mum took him to see a locum G.P. this morning on advice from H.V. but G.P. was not very helpful in terms of firm diagnosis and prognosis? G.P. has said she will refer to a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon. This is my daughter's first baby and she is concerned, as we all are.
