|Lymph Node Swelling in Groin Area
Dec 19, 2000
What does a swollen lymph node in the groin area indicate. Can it be operated on.
| Response from Dr. Young
A swollen gland in the groin is usally indicative of an infection in the groin or leg. It is difficult to be sure what kind of infection, and can range from a skin infection in the leg, to herpes to HIV. -BY
