Doctor insights on:
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.
Really Needs Exam: It could be several things from fungal infections, irritated or infected hair follicles, heat rash/chaffing, etc. It really needs to be examined to be sure.
Maybe: A single groin lump could be a hernia; or it can be an enlarged lymph node, a tumor, or even an infection. More than one lump in the same inguinal area (groin) is not likely to be an inguinal hernia. One's doctor can examine this/these and determine what it/they are.See 2 more doctor answers
I am 7 weeks pregnant. Had u/s yesterday showed ok. Today I noticed two small groin lumps (lymph node?) and no pain at all. Should I be concerned?
Doubtful: It is common to have small lymph nodes or groin lumps even when not sick. Suggest a follow up with your doctor should pain develop or if there is more concern. Feel good
I have 3 groin lumps so I had a pap smear it hurt badly for the first time ever I have had an abnormal pap before and have hpv. Could it be cancer?
Possible, not likely: What you describe would no likely be cancer, but would more likely be an infection. The groin lumps would probably be enlarged lymph nodes. However, some pelvic cancers do spread to the groin lymph nodes - so it is possible. See your doctor to find out what is going on.See 1 more doctor answer
3 which is now 4 groin lumps in a week. Had pap smear which was very painful. They haven't before but had abnormal pap prev and hpv. Cervical cancer?
Negative pap?: If your present pap is negative, then it is more likely that the "groin lumps" (lymph nodes) are caused by an infection. Please see your md for clarification.
3 groin lumps dr said no infection but possible leukemia/lymphoma did blood work just had cbc/metab panel 4 weeks ago and normal. Can it change quick?
Biopsy: If the lymph nodes have been enlarged for 6 weeks or more and are not getting smaller, a biopsy should be considered. See your doctor again. Normal blood tests do not indicate that everything is ok, though it may be nothing serious.
Severe bone pain 4 groin lumps easy bruising weight loss headaches nausea but bloodwork norm excp for slight low grans. What could be going on?
Hard to say: Multiple potential causes. Good to know your blood work looked ok, but certainly not normal and further workup indicated.
See doctor: Possibilities would include inflamed lymph nodes or an inguinal (groin) hernia. Rarely could be an aneurysm of the artery. Your doctor could help you identify the cause of your discomfort and lump.
Need to know: It's nearly impossible to treat something if you don't know what you're treating. It could be anything from an enlarged lymph node to an ingrown hair to an inguinal hernia. The knowledge of other symptoms is important as well. I recommend you see your doctor for a proper history and exam to correctly determine what, if anything, needs to be treated.
Here are some...: Are the lump hurting you in which way, and how long has it been? Without a detailed set of info on the specifics, relevance, & sequence of events of the lump (s), it is hard to tell what it may be.
