Lump in front groin area

I found a large lump in the front groin area at the top of my thigh. It is about 2 inches long about 3/8 inch wide very hard and not painful. I've been watching it for about 2 weeks thinking it might be a boil, but it has not changed, turned painful or anything.

I am reluctant to go to the Doctor if it is nothing and also realize that it is most likely not cancer or anything overly serious. Cannot really find much on the internet, most searches turns up boils.

Was hoping someone might have an idea what it could be besides a boil.

Re: Lump in front groin area

Your post does not indicate male or female and that is not usually an important factor, however, It may make the difference between how concerned, how soon, you get. I know that my brother was about 46 when he found a lump in his groin, he ignored it until it was painful and by then it was definitely cancerous. Please keep an eye on it and if it does not go way in a few days, show it your doctor. I am sure you had rather spend money or time to have good news than to spend a lot of money or time, suffering from surgery, chemo, radiation and all the possible side effects. Early prevention is the key. Good luck.
