Husband and I both have fatty feeling lumps on back of thigh near/on tendon. Dr said wasn't lymph nodes. What could it be then? Normal?

Sharing Lumps: You have given me a wonderful description of what we call lipomas. These are noncancerous fatty growths that can occur almost anywhere on the body. They cannot be transmitted from person to person so the fact you both have them is not any consideration. If they cause you pain, discomfort or are unsightly, they are easy to remove. They can grow so you may want to have them removed at some point. ...Read more

11 year old son came to me saying he had a knot that hurts. It's in the inner thigh crease where I'd imagine lymph nodes reside. It is also red/tender?

Meanwhile, you can have him apply warm compresses to the area, and take ibuprofen for pain. Also, please take his temperature, if you haven't already, and let the doctor know if he has a fever. ...Read more

I was scratching around my groin area by my leg and now my skin hurts and has gotten hard. The area is red could it deal with my lymph nodes. Worried?

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
