Not necessary: From your post, I am guessing your swollen nodes are in the groins. This may be due to injury, infection or cancer. If the nodes are small and unchanged for may years, nothing to worry about. If the nodes have been getting larger, then you should talk with your doctor. Some cancer assocaited with swollen groin nodes are lymphoma, melanoma, and testicular cancer (in men), or cervical cancer (women).
