In brief: Yes

Two common conditions in the groin are large lymph nodes and inguinal hernias.
The growth of lymph nodes could be cancerous (lymphomas or metastatic from other tissues of the adomen and pelvis) or infectious. Hernias cause no problems unless incarcerated causing obstruction or pain.

In brief: Yes

It could be a pulled muscle, or enlarged lymph nodes from an infection.
Keep the area dry. Try not to lick the area.See your personal provider for further evaluation.
