My 2 year old has 2cm hard lump in groin right side. It is movable and painless. He has no other symptoms. Could this be lymphoma at his age?

Have a lump in groin area, 2-3 cm and movable. Appeared abruptly then faded away only to appear abruptly again 4 weeks later. Should I be concerned?
Pea-sized lump: The most common pea-sized (3-5 mm) lump in the groin area is an ingrown-hair which blocks up a hair follicle and enlarges as normal gland secretions can't get out. These will usually take care of themselves, as long as the hair follicle itself does not get infected from the irritation, in which case an antibiotic would be indicated. Another possibility is a lymph gland, but these are usually large. ...Read more

Previous ultrasound of testes clear, found lump in groin doctor sent me for another ultrasound but of groin and testes, why do another testes scan?
Because you: Are there. The scrotal sac is in the same neighborhood as the groin so might as well look again. Note that hernias are a common cause of groin pain/lumps (sometimes extending to the scrotum) but a hernia may not be seen unless maneuvers such as scanning you standing up and/or exhaling against closed lips (valsalva maneuver) are performed. Ask the person doing the exam about these maneuvers. ...Read more
