As mentioned before, biopsy is the gold standard for determining if lymph nodes are lymphoma. ...Read more

.9cm groin lymph node squishy. Had one removed in groin dermatopathic lymphadentis was path. This maybe the node he was supposed to remove and missed?

Small likely benign: The 0.9 cm lymph node that you feel along with a pathology of dermatopathic lymphadenopathy in combination suggest a benign process, most likely a response to a local irritation or infection in the groin or limb areas. If also in the same region, it is likely the surgeon went for the most accessible or largest. Several lymph nodes may be enlarged in DL. If you have skin lymphoma concern, see MD ...Read more

If you are still having pain then see your doctor and surgeon. Your doctor will examine you, ask questions and may repeat labs. There is always a small risk and your doctors want to know if you are not better. Be well. ...Read more

Lymph nodes on right groin removed both benign. Recent skin infection right groin now swollen lymph node left groin. Related even though diff sides?

Groin lymph nodes: Lymph nodes in the groin are commonly slightly swollen because they have to deal with the daily activity of poop passing by that lymph drainage area. Lymph nodes are like the army barracks for the immune system. So the answer is 'no' left sided lymph nodes are not related to right side after removal. You can get skin infections now on the right side given the surgery that took place. Take care. ...Read more
