Smile painless lump on inner thigh near groin

I woke up a couple of weeks ago with an itch on my upper thigh. When I scratched it I notices there was a large lump. I went into the bathroom to look at it closer. It is a large lump that has no pain. I called my doctor and they got me right in that day. She said it looks like my lymph node is involved. She put in on a antibiotic and set me up with a surgeon. I go see the surgeon next week. Has anyone else had this problem?

Re: painless lump on inner thigh near groin

Hi Jewel

Lumps in that area can be just about anything... like an infection or a fatty tumor. It could be something more serious, but let's wait and cross that bridge IF we come to it.

I am sure you are worried and concerned. However, know for now that your doctor is doing the right things here. If you feel overwhelmed, call him and tell him!

I'll be thinking of you and hoping all is well. Kepp us posted.

Re: painless lump on inner thigh near groin

I know this is a silly question, but where are your groin lymph nodes? Are they right in the crease?
