Unhappy Worried about groin lymph nodes, is it normal that they are not movable?

I can feel a few lymph nodes in my groin area on every side of the groin and I can't tell if they are new or how long they have been there. They aren't really swollen but somehow it still worries me a bit because I don't know if they are new or not. One of them has been there for years and also hasn't changed but I can't tell if the others are new or not. And what worries me is that they are not movable and firm! They are maybe 0,5mm big. I read that it's not a good sign if they are not movable and also not soft.
What shall I do now? Is a biopsy a big deal? Or just a small surgery? Since they are directly under the skin it shouldn't be too hard to remove them if they need to be removed, right?
I don't understand why my doctor didn't say anything about the one node soft and also not movable.
