Is a 7mm groin node something to be worried about?

It depends: Why are you having evaluation of groin with measurement of lymph nodes? Lymph nodes can be noticeable for many reasons (infection, cancer, trauma).

Antifungal: Keep area clean and dry. Avoid sugar (sugar feeds yeast) and if you're a diabetic, keep sugars under control. Grapefruit seed extract or oregano oil can be helpful natural antifungals to use orally or topically. In some cases an oral or topical antifungal medicine might need to be prescribed by your doctor. ...Read more

How do you know if you pulled your groin?

Inner thigh pain: Generally a pulled groin will cause pain along the inner aspect of the upper thigh. The pain can be worsened by resisting adduction (squeezing the knees together against resistance) and or by abducting (pulling the affected leg away from the other leg. These exam findings are not specific or sensitive in a laymans hand so please consult a specialist for proper evaluation. ...Read more

Why does my groin pop. When i do. Floor exercises my groin pops..?

Not sure: I've never had anyone complain of groin popping. Hips or knees may pop. Ligaments or tendons may pop or snap. Let me tell you that popping/snapping is not a specific symptom that indicates where the problem is or what it is. It is audible and definitely draws attention, but in the absence of other symptoms, namely pain, limitation in the range of motion, it may be nothing to worry about. ...Read more
