Groin/thigh pain: Usually a pulled muscle does not cause lymph node swelling. Lymph nodes usually swell in infection rarely in tumor. Groin LN usually drain the leg/ vaginal/vulva area. Also consider possible clot/hematoma( bleeding into soft tissue from trauma) if thigh pain ( though clots usually don't cause LN swelling). Would seek medical attention today, one can get an infection rather easily and quickly ...Read more

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food.

Poor thing!: Tina, I'm sorry your grandson is in pain; There are many possible causes of a mass in the "inguinal area."
