My 4 yr old daughter has knot in groin area and it is hot to touch and painful, what could this be?

Reactive lymph node

Open-uri20130819-28330-172zzgy
The lymph nodes are located all over the body & sift body serum & remove various particles,germs & debris. After a viral infection it is common for local glands(that may be the size of a pea at rest)to swell to the size of an almond or larger if they are working to clear debris.They can become infected and need antibiotics to assist in healing.See your doc for confirmation

I have swollen burning armpits, knots in groin area, lump in neck all blood work came back semi-normal(wbc slightly elevated)along with MRI sent to general surgeon, who couldn't explain why tests are normal, but primary has had me on steroids/anit-biotics

Consider a bx

it sounds as if one of the areas need to be biopsied to actually see what is going on. would prefer an open excisional biopsy with culture and sensitivities for fungus and bacteria. send the rest of the specimen to pathology for review.

I have hard and soft knots in my groin area and have trouble urinating and maintaining erection.

When to see the Doc

Groin
By your description the best I can say is please get in to see your family doctor. There is too much going on here that needs in person evaluation. Especially the part about difficulty urinating.

That could certainly be a hernia but there are more troublesome possibilities so see your doctor soon to have it checked. Hernias can be repaired. Get it checked.

My boyfriend has these bumps in his groin area. They are kind of hard and you can move them around under his skin. They feel like knots. Any theories?

See a doctor

Skin
A doctor would need to examine him in order to diagnose them. The lumps could be a number of thing including swollen lymph nodes possibly from an infection.

Had heart cath 6days ago through groin. Bruised & knot where procedure occurred and 2&1/2 inches down from that area. Normal?

Post CATH

Chest-heart
Some bleeding into the groin is not unusual post femoral puncture. It often dissects lower also. This should not in general be pulsatile or painful. It is worth having your dr. Check it.

what causes boils at the groin area?

Boils

Groin-penis
Boils are usually caused by staph bacteria. The bacteria often like warm, moist areas. Sometimes boils need to be lanced and/or treated with antibiotics to clear them. Using an antibacterial soap or wash may prove helpful for future eruptions.

Dr. David Earle answered:

What are the causes of abdominal hernias in the groin area?

Genetics

Abdomen
A groin hernia is when the natural openings in the abdominal wall (through which pass the spermatic cord on men and the round ligament in women) stretch out, and allow other abdominal contents to herniate through. While it can be brought on by coughing, or other sudden increase in abdominal pressure, it is also due to happen more often in those susceptible based on their genetics. Hope this helps!
