Possible lymphoma: The presence of lymph nodes that can be palpated in axilla would lead to evaluation of other sites as seen on CAT scan. This procedure must have been ordered to see if other nodal areas were involved as in retroperitoneum. Since there are many causes of multiple areas of enlarged nodes, dx must be determined by bx. Aspiration of no value since architecture of nodes required for proper dx. ...Read more

Cellulitis of groin: It sounds like you have classical symptoms for cellulitis - a skin injury, followed by redness, pain and induration (hardness of the skin). You should show this to a doctor, because depending on how bad it is -you may well need treatment. I'd slather it in bacitracin now and call your doc to be seen. The lymph nodes might need to respond if it's bad enough (they are garrisons of the immune system) ...Read more

The pain should disappear within a week or so after completely getting well. If the pain with bending persists for several weeks, it's worthwhile to see your doctor about it. ...Read more

Are all lymph nodes in the groin area, what most doctors call benign tumors, felt by lightly pressing the area?

Are all lymph nodes in the groin area, what most doctors call benign tumors, felt by lightly pressing the area?

No, and no: Lymph nodes are not tumors. An enlarged lymph node is not a benign tumor, though because there are no benign tumors of the lymphatic system, we may call it "benign". The vast majority of groin lymph nodes are not palpable. When I was a barefoot-summers kid, I got big groin nodes whenever it was nice out. Life's to hard already to worry about each lymph node that comes up. Relax. ...Read more
