Maybe a hernia: If you lay down, and the lump goes away, or you can push it and it goes away, its likely a hernia. Also, while laying down, keep your hand over the area of the lump and cough. If you feel the sensation something is being pushed out through a hole, its a hernia. See a general surgeon for a consult if you think it is a hernia. ...Read more

It is very rare for this lymph node to represent something like a lymphoma - a type of treateable cancer. As a precaution, you should see a doctor to check it given how long it has been around. Remember that this is still much more likely to be an irritated lymph node. Hernias tend to cause pain. ...Read more

Pea-sized lump in groin area. Not sure how long it was there?

Pea-sized lump: The most common pea-sized (3-5 mm) lump in the groin area is an ingrown-hair which blocks up a hair follicle and enlarges as normal gland secretions can't get out. These will usually take care of themselves, as long as the hair follicle itself does not get infected from the irritation, in which case an antibiotic would be indicated.
