Groin hernia or swollen lymph node??
Jun 26, 2002

I have a lump in my groin that came up about 2 weeks ago. It gets worse towards the end of the day and it throbs and aches most of the day. Do swollen nodes cause this kind of reaction or do you think it could be a inguinal hernia? I started weight training a couple of months ago and now the lump seems to ache more when I am doing squats. I do plan on going to the doctor, but I am scared. Please help!

Response from Dr. Henry

Sounds more like a hernia or tendon/muscle problem--see a doc! KH
