Lymph nodes on right groin removed both benign. Recent skin infection right groin now swollen lymph node left groin. related even though diff sides?

Groin lymph nodes: Lymph nodes in the groin are commonly slightly swollen because they have to deal with the daily activity of poop passing by that lymph drainage area.

Pay attention to this mass, and you should try to see your physician regarding this. ...Read more
