Question Lymph Nodes in Groin Area.

I can feel a total of like 6-7 lymph nodes in my groin/inguinal area on both sides.
They are palpable and the skin is moving on top of them ...
I am a skinny person , 1.80/55kg ... I'm not sure if this is one of the reasons I can easily feel them....
They are like a peanut-shape sized ... 1-2cm ? Not bigger... nothing really big there.
Now, as far as I've searched , I noticed that some people say it's quite normal to feel your groin nodes and they are a little larger than other ones located in different parts of the bodies.
So, it's normal to feel my groin nodes if I am really skinny?
Is it true that most of the people can somehow feel their groin nodes?
Also, is it true that groin/inguinal ones are a little larger ?
Is their size/shape normal ? also the way I feel them when touching ... they are like sliding ...moving up and down when touching.
I can't get to a doctor now,(at least not a specialist) insurance problems ..bad period going through and any advice will be good .

Thanks in advance

Re: Lymph Nodes in Groin Area.

Hi Alexander,
It sounds like your symptoms are worth checking out, certainly not definative. But if the nodes become more unmovable or over 2cm in length I reccommend you find a way to afford getting them checked. Good Luck!
Have a Great Day!
