Welcome to HCM,

As your doctor said lymph node enlargement in groin is usually non specific. It could be reactive secondary to pilonoidal sinus.

Lymphoma usually have swellings in multiple area,not localized.

Bitter taste is not related to lymph node swelling, but could be due to infection secondary to abscess
