Regional lymphadenop: If the lymphadenopathy is limited to your groin it would be regional but still you need a clinician to check if there are none in the other areas. There should be an underlying cause that needs to be investigated. Fine needle aspiration biopsy or excision biopsy are possible approaches you need to discuss with your doctor. πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾
