swollen lymph node in the groin
Mar 29, 2001

i was wondering what does a swollen lymph node in the groin generally feel like?where are they located in that area? can it feel similar to a muscle spasm? thank you...

Response from Dr. Boyle

A swollen lymph node feels like a lump under the skin (can be pea/lima bean size or larger). Lymph nodes are located throughout your body but generally can be felt best in your groin area, neck and under your arms. They do not feel like a muscle spasm since they are more distinctive in location, size and feel to the touch. BB
