Need more info: The location is just too hard to completely understand. This could be anything from a varicose vein to lymph node to direct hernia. This is one of the times when you need to give more detail. I suggest doing a consult with one of the many HealthTap physicians to be able to give more information and possibly show a picture. ...Read more
