Yes: A mass or lump in the groin can be from many different things like lymph node, cyst, fatty tumor, cancer and hernia. Please see a doctor and have this area examined.

Maybe: A single groin lump could be a hernia; or it can be an enlarged lymph node, a tumor, or even an infection. More than one lump in the same inguinal area (groin) is not likely to be an inguinal hernia. One's doctor can examine this/these and determine what it/they are.
