Groin pain radiating to thigh, swelling. Have fatigue, sneezing, chest discomfort. Elevated lymphocyte count. Need advice

Hi, I have a dull pain/discomfort in my left groin which radiates to my left inner-thigh and laterally towards my left kidney, There is some discernible puffing-up of my left groin and slight pain on palpation . My right groin is also slightly puffed-up, however, without any discomfort. I first noticed all of the above approximately 10 days ago, and have been experiencing fatigue , mild sneezing and slight chest discomfort (viral infection like symptoms). A full blood count revealed a slight (2 percent) increase in my lymphocytes (after some experimental penicillin taking on my part - 200mg twice daily for 3 days) and my doctor has put me on Co-amoxyclav 625mg twice a day for 7 days. (He inferred a inguinal hernia, but was not convinced on examination.) I am 40 years old. Non-diabetic. No history of cancer, STD s etc., although, my only sibling was diagnosed with a seminoma at the age of 30. Would greatly appreciate any advice! Thanks! Walker.

Thanks for the query

Your symptoms are directed towards inguinal hernia but as on examination it is not appreciated so the next most probable cause can be urinary tract infection. urine R/E will help in evaluation but if it still goes normal then the better option is to consult urologist and scan for viral diseases
