Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?

Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?

That's news to me: Since essentially all young adults have a few swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and it's healthy (they're your friends), it would be impossible to investigate this (frankly silly-sounding) claim.

Otherwise, stop worrying and get on with your life and be thankful for good health. ...Read more

Groin swelling: A groin swelling in weight lifters, espeically where it is soft and fluctant, is most likely to be a hernia. If it occurs to the side of the bladder area it is what they call a 'direct' hernia; if it is a swelling that comes through a little opening at the top of either side of the scrotum/inguinal canal, it is an indirect hernia. Self-treatment is with a truss (a support garment) or surgery. ...Read more
