Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.

Chronic: Since the soreness is not going away, this appears to be a chronic issue, so it is best for you to go to a doctor and have the area examined and properly diagnosed so the best treatment can occur. Best wishes.

Needs to be examined: given your description, likely to be inflamed/infected structure in your groin area or below, but better be seen, in the interim use warm compresses and pain killers, good luck
