I have had tenderness to left armpit and groin for months with soreness down side and leg what could be the cause dr. Says stress?

I have had tenderness to left armpit and groin for months with soreness down side and leg what could be the cause dr. Says stress?

Hard to say...: The armpit and the groin are a couple of feet away from one another, but things that can occur in common are swollen lymph nodes, which can happen during certain infections or other diseases. Also, if one had an unusually strenuous day (such as helping a friend move out of a 3-bedroom house) the tendons and ligaments in an armpit and groin can be sore. If worried, a second opinion can be helpful. ...Read more

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

Sore, swollen lymph nodes under my right arm for 8 months. Spread to groin, & behind both knees. Ct scan neg. Had two sonograms under right arm, but surgeons say nodes not big enough to biopsy?

Sore, swollen lymph nodes under my right arm for 8 months. Spread to groin, & behind both knees. Ct scan neg. Had two sonograms under right arm, but surgeons say nodes not big enough to biopsy?

May need 2nd opinion: Sore lymph nodes are usually inflammatory and not malignant. I'm assuming that your nodes are less than 1 cm in size if your surgeon says they are too small to biopsy. Malignant nodes usually grow slowly to greater than 1cm. That is not an absolute rule and biopsy can be considered if nodes are persistent and are otherwise unexplained. If they persist and are concerning, get another opinion. ...Read more
