What are the causes of extremely painful groin lymph nodes?

What are the causes of extremely painful groin lymph nodes?

Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. A lymph node "tastes" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria, viruses, cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and enlarges in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They may be painful. ...Read more

2 groin lymph nodes excised both dermatopathic lymphadentis. Now another very prominent not enlarged lymph Nose on other side. What to do? Its new

Hard to say!: Have you been checked for std's? Shaving, waxing, harsh soaps, overscrubbing, scents can all cause enough irritation in the skin to cause lymph nodes to react and swell. If none of these could be the reason, and stopping or treating them does not help, you need further evaluation to figure out what's going on. Congratulations on being skinny enough to be able to feel them! (The silver lining!) ...Read more

Please tell me, could a knee injury cause swollen groin lymph nodes?

Please tell me, could a knee injury cause swollen groin lymph nodes?

Ask your pcp: Isoltated knee injuries (acl tear, meniscus tear, kneecap dislocations etc.)are not associated w/ inflamed inguinal lymph nodes in my experience. Infections in or around the knee could result in larger inguinal nodes but if u are concerned see your pcp for full evaluation. Best of luck! ...Read more

Do lymphomas grow symmetricalaly? Have 2 symmetrical groin lymph nodes. 2 docs say don't worry — perfect CBC Have health anxiety so I worry

Possible lymphoma: A single firm lesion in the groin could always be pathologic and not inflammatory. Symmetrical nodes rarely represent bilateral mets which could occur from a lesion near the anal canal. If the nodes do not enlarge, and are soft then watching is justified. If nodes increase in size and number than excisional bx indicated. FNA is rarely of value in lymph node pathology. ...Read more

2 groin lymph nodes excised both dermatopathic lymphadenitis features. Had razor burn rash before lymph nodes appeared is this why dermatopathic?

Unusual: Unusual to remove lymph nodes from groin unless pain, drainage, rapid growth, rock-hard consistency. The term is meant to convey the idea of lymph node reaction to something in skin. Perhaps, even probably, the inflammation after shaving was the cause. The DR who did the surgery should check your feet, etc., then discuss this with you. ...Read more

Intermittent fever of 101, body aches, and moderate pain in groin lymph nodes for 3 days. No other symptoms. Does this sound like a virus?

Intermittent fever of 101, body aches, and moderate pain in groin lymph nodes for 3 days. No other symptoms. Does this sound like a virus?

Yes and no: The first part of your description sounds like a classic viral syndrome: fever, body aches, but moderate pain in the groin (inguinal) lymph nodes could point to a more serious bacterial infection. I would recommend seeing your gynecologist or primary care provider to determine why you have the lymph node swelling. It may be viral, but it would be safer to get a physical exam to be sure. ...Read more

2 groin lymph nodes excised both path showed dermatopathic lymphadenitis features. Had razor burn rash before lymph nodes enlarged is this why path?

I have a swollen groin lymph node, please help!?

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.
