I have an almond sized lump along/on my inguinal ligament. It moves left right easily but doesn't move up down. Is this node considered mobile/benign?

I have an almond sized lump along/on my inguinal ligament. It moves left right easily but doesn't move up down. Is this node considered mobile/benign?

The connective: Tissue in the groin area runs parallel to the inguinal ligament chain. That makes the lymph nodes more mobile sideways than up and down. Movability of a lymph node makes it, by definition, mobile. Generally, mobile lymph nodes are benign. Things to watch out for include further enlargement, loss of mobility, lymph node swelling in other areas of the body. (This isn't an inclusive list.) ...Read more

Grade2 Spondy L5/S1& spina bifida occulta. Low back pain on right. What would cause sharp moving pain along inguinal ligament? GP palpation normal

If it's the hip you-: -are talking about, it sounds like a mix up to me. Things such as a labral tear as well as AVN do not heal like that.

There are now 6.0T. MR's in large centers but more dangerous if you have any metallic pieces in U ...Read more
