Dr. Michael Miller answered:

How many lymph nodes in your groin?

Many, Many

Cancer
Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well

When groin lymph nodes swell is it hiv?

Not necessarily.

Swollen groin lymph nodes can be due to many reasons depending on the overall assessment. If it is painful, it may be infection. If there are other lymph nodes that are swollen, then you may need further work up. Swollen groin lymph nodes are very common, usually because many times people do not wear socks when wearing shoes. I would go see your doctor for definite medical advice.

Painful swollen right side groin lymph nodes?

Nearby infection

Groin
Painful swollen lymph nodes on one side may often suggest that you have a nearby infection on that side. It should resolve when the infection goes away. The swollen lymph node suggests that your body is working to fight infection.

Can athletes foot cause groin lymph node pain?

GroinLymphadenopathy

Athletes_foot
Athlete's foot (tinea pedis) doesn't by itself cause groin lymph node pain, as it is a fungal condition limited to the skin--unless there is concomitant foot infection--. Pain in a groin lymph node suggests inguinal lymphadenopathy, w/c is usually caused by infection or metastatic tumor/malignancy in the foot or elsewhere in lower limb, in w/c case it is imperative to seek prompt medical attention
