Hernia can become very painful suddenly as the intestinal wall gets 'trapped", and that should be evaluated immediately. Avoiding heavy lifting may prevent this. Hernias typically are repaired surgically. ...Read more

Is it bad if i can feel a lympy node in upper left groin, it's about the size of a pea, doesn't hurt, and no visible swelling, and moves around easily?

Is it bad if i can feel a lympy node in upper left groin, it's about the size of a pea, doesn't hurt, and no visible swelling, and moves around easily?

Not so bad: If you're thin or athletic build, it's not uncommon to feel a small lymph node in your groins, perhaps several.

Just check it every 3-4 days . Good luck. ...Read more

The swelling represents bleeding in the groin from the puncture site in the blood vessel used fro the angiogram. ...Read more
