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

Unfortunately it's--: --genetics. U have 2 work with what U have. If U starve Ur self U will loose fat but also muscle mass. By increasing Ur leg strength & speed, U will add mass 2 Ur thighs.
