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 nearest urgent care.

6'1, 158 lb male. Can feel a few lymph nodes on neck and groin. Not tender or sore. Normal?

Yes: Most of your lymph nodes are located in your head and neck region. Lymph nodes that frequently swell are in this area, as well as in your armpits and groin area. So this is normal but if they are swollen more than 2wks I would seek a MD for evaluation. No worries

45 male with tenderness in both arm pits/groin for approx 1 month. Rash x 2 months being tx with steroid cream. No fever or night sweats. Thoughts?

See derm: If you have pustules at the armpits and groin, it may be from infection of the glands. Antiperspirant and/or low-dose antibiotic may be helpful but steroid cream may make it worse.

Have a sore lump in my groin, is this serious. I am a 39 year old male

See doctor: Most likely it's an inflamed gland (lymph node). They are very common in neck region but not so common in groin unless some infection or inflammation is going on. Some times glands can be up due to sinister causes too. Please consult your doctor.

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.

What should I do if I have a tender lump in the groin area?

What should I do if I have a tender lump in the groin area?

Get it checked out: It is most likely a small lymphnode or a cyst, but bacterial infection with klebsiella ganulomatis is possible, often starts as small, painless nodules appearing after 10–40 days following contact with the bacteria. Later the nodules burst, creating open, fleshy, oozing, and infection continues to destroy the tissue until treated. Not to scare u, but should consult doc if worsens. Good luck.

I have to painful tender glands on my groin area for several days?

I have to painful tender glands on my groin area for several days?

Inguinal lymph nodes: That are swollen, painful and tender, are usually result of an infection in the leg or in the groin area. If it is on both sides, it might be caused by a generalized infection. Treat the infection, and the lymph nodes will subside. If you don't have an infection, it could be lymph cell malignancy, such as hodgkin's disease, so get to a doctor if the swelling persists for more than several days.

Too much Sex?: There is no medical reason to limit one's sexual play. But, there are natural laws and limits to the amount of friction and orgasm that can occur without some rest and recovery. You cannot rewrite the laws of nature...Of what your body can manage without causing yourself some pain.

Many things: They could be lymph nodes, cysts, ingrown hairs... Best thing to do is get them checked out by your doctor. It doesn't sound like an urgent thing (especially if they've been there for a while), but in the next 1-2 weeks you should get them checked to put your mind at ease.

Tender area upper left groin pressure from pants in one spot while sitting no visible sign of hernia got better but started again after a year?

See a doctor: You still could have a hernia, as they are often not visible to the person in the early stages. Only larger inguinal (groin) hernias become visible. Also could just be muscle discomfort. Have an exam with a doctor to be sure.

How many lymph nodes are in the groin area female? I have had tenderness on the right side since April. It is August. I had an ultrasound

There are multiple: There can be over a dozen nodes in the groin. They are often related to the body fighting an infection or to abnormal cells in your blood. It would advised to obtain further labs like a culture for any STDs that could cause this node. Further lab work should include a complete blood count and follow up imaging studies of the node to rule out any serious causes.

Recurrent hernia: One thing I would be worried about is a recurrent hernia. The other possibility is an enlarged lymph node. A good physical exam with your doctor may be able to distinguish between the two, other wise you might need a ct scan or an ultrasound.
