Exclamation Swollen lymph nodes

4 days ago I discovered a lump under my skin on the left side of my groin. It was after I was lifting, at night. Its only one lymph node though. I am a teen Male. It is not red, visible, or anything. It can only be felt by moving ur finger over it. It is very tiny, pea sixed maybe smaller, but when i measured it, it was about 1/4 of an inch. I am worried, it doesn't hurt only when pressure is applied, even then it barely hurts. My body has started to ache a little ever since i got this. It doesn't recede when I lay down so I don't think it is a hernia. I did develop a pimple on my penis a couple of days before. And that has went down, but the head looks like a scab, kind of orangish color. I was lifting that day I noticed it, could it be a strain. It doesnt hurt when I run or cough or anything I dont know. And no I have never had sex, I am still a virgin. Please any comments would be appreciated!!
I did not see my doctor, I'll probably be setting up an appointment soon!

Re: Swollen lymph nodes

It is quite probable that the minor infection on your penis has made the lymph node pop up. If it is not growing or getting hard, then it is probably OK. Wouldn't hurt to get a doctor to look at it, just to get a baseline examination, then if it gets worse, you can map the changes. Sera
