Lump in Groin: All groin lumps should be examined by your health care provider. Causes: harmless (benign) cyst, hernia (usually a soft, large bulge in the groin on one or both sides) infections in the legs, injury trauma to the groin area. Lipomas (harmless fatty growths), swollen lymph glands in the groin.
