I have a swollen tender purple lump node in the groin next to my testicle. It appeared a couple of days ago. No visible sore. Otherwise healthy.

I have a swollen tender purple lump node in the groin next to my testicle. It appeared a couple of days ago. No visible sore. Otherwise healthy.

See below: The most common cause of a tender, purplish in color, lump in the groin area would be a furuncle or carbuncle which are a type of "boil". For small furuncles, warm compresses to promote drainage are usually sufficient treatment. For larger furuncles/carbuncle, incision and drainage by a physician may be needed with or without a course of antibiotics. Recommend MD evaluation for accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

1 sesame seed size purple spot on toe.2 flat pink dime sized spots on butt, dull testicle ache, had bump on roof for 1 day. Protected sex 4wk ago. Hiv?

Most likely Not HIV: You might have another std (not enough information for conclusive answer was given). 4 wks is not sufficient time for these types of symptoms to show for HIV - at this stage HIV would be more "flu-like" in nature + you used protection. Still if you are concerned see health clinic or regular md for testing. ...Read more

Can veetid cure these uti, gonorrhea, clap? Had pain in testicles after anal sex. Took 9 pills symptoms cleared up. I ran out of meds & symptom return

STD: Perhaps it can help with some forms of uti. But, it will not treat gonorrhea or chlamydia. I am not sure where you got information that would tell you that pain in the testicles was an infection or an std. Nothing that is contagious would show up that quickly after a sexual encounter. Perhaps you can re-ask the question and include all of your symptoms. ...Read more

I just had hiatal hernia surgery 4 days and my penis and testicles are swollen and purplish is this normal after surgery?

Not likely: Just to clarify, did you have a hiatal hernia or inguinal hernia repair. Inguinal hernias are in the groin and their repair laparoscopically can definitely result in bruising and swelling of the penis and scrotum. During hiatal hernia repair, no good reason for your symptoms. If you had a catheter in your bladder during surgery then this could possibly cause the swelling and bruising. ...Read more

For the time being, please focus on collecting the above ANS see a trustworthy professional, who should be able to explain what. .. ...Read more

Pain in urethra. Waiting on chlamydia and gonorrhea tests, while taking doxycycline. But now noticing purplish bumps just inside tip of penis. Normal?

Pain in urethra. Waiting on chlamydia and gonorrhea tests, while taking doxycycline. But now noticing purplish bumps just inside tip of penis. Normal?

Get examined: "Purplish bumps" may not be abnormal, maybe just blood vessels, looking more prominent because of inflammation from gonorrhea or chlamydia. But genital herpes or warts might be possible as well. Presumably you saw a doctor, right? If not (e.g. if you arranged your own testing through a lab or on line), of if your doctor didn't examine you closely, return to the office right away. Good luck! ...Read more
