30 year old male. Hard lump under my skin in the groin area. About 1 cm long. Can be moved slightly and slightly sore if I press it. No other lumps.

Cyst, gland or node: Sore hard lumps are worrisome, especially those in the groin area as they can represent swollen lymph nodes. Lumps that move are less likely to be cancer. Cysts & glands can also get clogged, even infected. Apply warm compresses to (possible) infections (ice packs to injuries). If not better, go see your Family Doc for evaluation. If worse before then, go to the nearest urgent care. ...Read more

Any ideas why I get sore easily? Mainly on back, abdomen, groin, butt and shoulders. I play soccer 2-3 days in a week 19 yrs old/male.

Might need a break : Great that you're getting this kind of exercise, but wonder if the soreness could be from the soccer. Maybe a little conditioning in between soccer could help. There are also inflammatory conditions of the muscles that could be causing this discomfort. Talk to your doctor and let him know the symptoms, to see if any workup is in order. ...Read more

See a dermatologist if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more
