How could I know if I have a cancer on my groin?

Groin cancer?: I assume you are referring to enlarged nodes in the groin and whether they can be cancer. The answer is yes, lymphomas and other cancers starting in the extremities or pelvis can go to the groin (inguinal) nodes. However, many other inflammatory or infectious problems can enlarge those nodes as well (that ain't precisely a clean area). See a doc to be evaluated properly. Best to you. ...Read more

Will storing an iPhone 6 in my pocket cause groin cancer of any form?

Phones and CA: Several studies have looked at cellphone use and CA. The largest which followed Pts for 20 years showed no increase in brain tumors. Other studies are on going... but the consensus now is that phones do not pose much of a risk for brain tumors. There is no data to even look at in regards to CA in the groin area. There are plenty of other things to avoid that we know cause CA, like smoking... ...Read more

If you had enlarged red lymph nodes in your groin for max a week that went away and came back a year later for max a week, what's the odds of cancer?

Little chance.: Cancer is rare in your age group. Lymph nodes can be temporarily enlarged for lots of reasons: infection, or trauma (shaving), reaction to a new soap/detergent, etc. Get checked out and be sure everything is okay and then you can relax. Practice safe sex or you could get an std which can be nearly as bad as cancer. ...Read more

Testicular pain: Go see your family physician. It's important to evaluate for testicular torsion, a surgical emergency, with sudden onset. Gradual pain can be caused by epididymytis. In your age group, testicular cancer is more of a concern than prostate ca. Testicular ca can present with an enlarged testicle, lump or swelling, pain is rare. Prostate cancer occurs in older men and not with testicular pain. ...Read more

See a physician!: Your doctor will ask you many detailed questions - including what the time span of enlargement has been and your medical history. In combination with a physical exam (of your entire body, including special attention to the consistency of those ymph nodes) and probably some tests, your doctor will narrow down the range of possibilities. ...Read more

Seen 2 Drs about a groin lump. Both said it was a reactive node. How long will the swelling last? 3rd week now. Still worrying about cancer.

Seen 2 Drs about a groin lump. Both said it was a reactive node. How long will the swelling last? 3rd week now. Still worrying about cancer.

Lymph node enlarged: In general lumps in the groin can be present and up to 1.5 or 2 cm in size. They are generally reactive but low grade lymphomas (lymph node cancer) can present like this. It is however a condition that we generally watch and don't jump into treatment. I 'd wait for another week, if the node is growing then I will recommend removing it as a a biopsy. For now your 2 doctors are correct. ...Read more

Check the skin: Make sure to check your skin all along your leg, including your foot for anything that could be causing the reactive node. Also make sure to ask about the possibility of a hernia. If nothing, and your still worried, you could have it surgically removed and sent to a pathology lab to find out for sure. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have a pain in my groin or what feels like the back of my right testical im not 100% sure were it is but could it be my prostate or prostate cancer?

Not likely: The prostate is located deep in the pelvis, below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancers rarely cause pain. You are 23 years old, so it is much more likely to be either a musculoskeletal strain (groin area) or testicular inflammation (many causes.) http://www. Nlm. Nih.
