Groin lump: This could be a reactive lymph node that is due to an infection. One would be worried about any recent infections on the legs or even any sexually transmitted infections. If you have had any recent unprotected sex, may want to get tested. Other reasons to get seen is if you develop fevers, chills, night sweats, or if the lump gets bigger or doesn't go away after 2-4 weeks.
