Followup with Doc...: If you have no sites of infection/inflammation in the nearby tissues/organs such as external genitalia (penis & scrotum), legs, or thighs, you should have a timely close followup with current Doc so to decide if empirical RX with watch or proceeding with biopsy with/without CT scan of abdomen/pelvis is needed. Don't wait too long! Best wish ...
