A male asked:
Seen 2 Drs about a groin lump. Both said it was a reactive node. How long will the swelling last? 3rd week now. Still worrying about cancer.

Not worth worry: Unless your lymph node is growing in size and it gets bigger than 1-2 cm over the next 1,2 or 3 months, you have no reasons to worry about. There is no medical condition associated with a "reactive" lymph node. It is a vague and nonspecific term. So I would ignore it unless it changes in size which is not going to happen in 1,2 or 3 weeks time.
