Dime size lump on groin

This morning I noticed a red scrape like mark between my groin area and my thigh, in that crease. Underneath there was a dime sized lump. This afternoon the spot looks less red and bruised. It is somewhat sore only if I touch. Popped up sometime after Saturday morning because it wasn't there when I showered.

I can't imagine that it would be scraped as there was no way it could get injured in such a way. It doesn't look like an ingrown hair. Otherwise, at the moment, I feel ok, no fevers no nothing. No STDs, last blood work was a few weeks ago (I get bloodwork ran every 3 months due to medicine) was ok.

Going to have the doctor look at it if it is still there tomorrow. But any thoughts?

The emergency clinic diagnosed it as lymphadenitis. I was put on antibiotics and told to use warm compresses.

Re: Dime size lump on groin

Hi Shanibelle

I was going to say that it probably is a swelled lymph node. Thanks so much for reporting back with what the problem was. I also have been having some lymph system problems.

I really hope it clears up fast. I have done some studying on the lymph system and it amazes me

I didn't get much education in school about this subject, lol.
