Extremely sore burning left groin left testicle left armpit left shoulder stomach and painful burning lumps on left side of my neck please help?

Have it checked out: It sounds like you have a series of "lumps" or lymph nodes that are painful particularly on your left side. You should have it checked out to make sure there isn't an infection going on. Don't forget that the lymph nodes act as a drainage and filtration system to try to stop infection. They will swell and be painful. You also want to be sure the lymph nodes are not swollen because of cancer. ...Read more

Cyst or lipoma: If this lump is just under the skin, and changes in size, it is likely an inclusion cyst, a benign growth related to the skin elements. Sometimes a fatty tumor, or lipoma, can present this way, and is also a benign condition. See your physician if you have concerns, as most can be excised in the office under local anesthesia. ...Read more

Something else: Tough to say. Cysts, lesions not otherwise specified, etc. are possible. The only definitive diagnosis will come form a biopsy. An excisional biopsy may not only be diagnostic but therapeutic (it will get rid of it too). ...Read more

Need physical exam: It's possible it is a benign fatty tissue tumor called a "lipoma". Another possibility is a hernia. However, there are many other possibilities, and can only be diagnosed from an in person physical exam. If it has been there for 5 years it's most likely not a malignant tumor, but i recommend seeing your physician to sort it out. ...Read more
