Normal or infection: You can have a skin infection, like a pimple, on your thighs or groin that will cause them. If you are sexually active, sexually transmitted infections can cause them. If they are about the size of shelled peanuts, then they can just be normal. If they are from an infection, then they should shrink in a couple of weeks. The normal blood test means that it is nothing bad that you have.
