I would like to know about the antibiotic that was given to you. Did you have any other symptoms other than swollen lymph node? Eg. penile discharge
, fever. It could be a sexually transmitted infection.
Another possibility is Inguinal hernia
as the swelling is present in the inguinal region.Is the swelling present even when you lie down on your back. Any increase in the size of swelling while coughing. I think the doctor must have ruled out inguinal hernia.
You said the lymph node is slightly tender. Any redness
,warmth of the lymph node ?Any rapid increase in size of the lymph node?
Do you have any family history of lymphoma
, or blood cancers?
Or the lymph node enlargement could just be due to your immune response of fighting the fungal infection
. Like your doctor said, wait for 3-4 weeks, and if it has still not reduced, get further evaluation done.Meanwhile have healthy, nutritious food and stay healthy. Hope this helps :)
