Enlarged Lymphnode: Hello and welcome to HealthTap :)

Is that the only enlarged lymph node you have? Any fever or chills? Any vaginal ulcers or discharge? How long did you had this lymph node? Any h/o trauma or injury to the lower extremity. Please make sure either you inbox me further details or see a doctor. This needs further evaluation and treatment.

Can you give a general approximation of the centimeter size of an linguinal lymph node in the groin area? What is a normal size and an abnormal size?

Can you give a general approximation of the centimeter size of an linguinal lymph node in the groin area? What is a normal size and an abnormal size?

Size doesn't matter: It's common to find nodes up to 25 mm or even more on physical exam or autopsy. If your lymph nodes are not woody or tire-rubber hard, preposterously enlarged, or very stuck to the nearby structures, stop worrying about them. When I was a kid going barefoot in the summers, I blew up a few big ones on either side. Life's hard enough without obsessing that your normal lymph nodes are lymphoma. ...Read more

Hi there, I am a 17 year old male and just recently I have noticed my lymph node in my groin. It is on the left side and about the size of a pea, it is soft too. It is not visually noticeable but I can feel it. Is this normal? I have no other symptoms to

Hi there, I am a 17 year old male and just recently I have noticed my lymph node in my groin. It is on the left side and about the size of a pea, it is soft too. It is not visually noticeable but I can feel it. Is this normal? I have no other symptoms to

Yes, normal: At least half of all healthy persons have at least one groin lump like this. It's probably a scarred lymph node from some distant past infection. Do not repeatedly examine your own groin. That will just cause such lumps to appear from the pressure etc. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

If a lymph node is the size of golf ball or a tad bit smaller in the groin, does that mean it's lymphoma? '

If a lymph node is the size of golf ball or a tad bit smaller in the groin, does that mean it's lymphoma? '

Enlarged node: I would not jump to that conclusion. This does need evaluation. Biopsy, imaging, blood tests, physical examination and history are used to make that type of diagnosis. ...Read more

I had a lymphadenectomy on my right groin a month ago with negative results. Since then I noticed a new pea-sized lymph node near the biopsy site.?

Good to hear that: Almost all young men have palpable groin lymph nodes if they check. Often it's dermatopathic lymphadenopathy from going barefoot. You lost a node and now have a new replacement. Show your surgeon if it worries you. ...Read more

Brief sex 4 days ago. Today saw one painless large olive sized lymph node on left groin. No other symptoms or sores noticed. Is this herpes? Or what?

Not herpes: Almost certainly not herpes. There is no STD or other infection likely to cause lymph node enlargement in 4 days, especially without other symptoms like sores or irritation. The new lump in your groin -- whether really a lymph node or something else -- probably has nothing to do with the sexual event 4 days earlier. See a doctor if it persists, if any other symptoms, or you remain concerned. ...Read more

Can skinny people feel almost all their normal lymph nodes in neck groin and armpits? What size is considered unenlarged?

Had inch sized swollen groin lymph node for a month after unprotected sex. It eventually went away but I never recognized any other symptoms. Herpes?

Well I'm skinny about 5'11 and 149lbs and I can feel my lymph nodes and I was just wondering if inguinal groin nodes the size of raisins are normal? I haven't been in sexual contact in almost 8 months and the person I was with has been tested in every way

Nodes: Nodes normally are about that size or slightly larger. If you shave your pubic area that can lead to enlargement. I would be concerned if the nodes were rock hard or getting bigger. If you're still concerned, go see a gyn for a thorough pelvic examination that includes palpating the nodes and a pap smear. ...Read more
