I have a lump in my right groin area. My doctor said it was a hernia and he sent me to a surgeon who got a CT scan done it only showed lymph nodes .?

Yes: Seems like your surgeon was correct, likely identifying on their physical examination with you that there may be something else other than a hernia. A ct scan could possibly miss a very small hernia, but otherwise the finding of groin lymph nodes rather than a hernia indicates no need for surgery. Benign lymph node swelling is fairly common & slowly resolves over several weeks. ...Read more

Hi I'm liam and I'm 17 years old, I have a lump under my skin in the groin area above my penis and am curious to know what it is, can u help me?

Lump under skin: If it is small and looks like it is where a hair follicle is located, it may be an ingrown or infected follicle. These resolve with time, or you can try a warm compress to try to draw out the infection and work out the ingrown hair. Also, there are many lymph nodes in the groin, so it may be one of those (they are normal). If painful, red, getting larger, go see a doctor. ...Read more

I have a lump that bulges out in my groin area. I believe this is inguinal hernia. But however i don't seem to have any pain at all. Why is this so?
