Is it because of cancer or radiation that my father is having a painful lump on his inner leg ?

my dad is 66 yrs old and had radiation for prostate cancer , he has a painful lump on his inner leg just off to the left of his scrotum , is this related to his cancer (which his numbers have been great since the radiation) could this be some of the medal pieces that were injected for the radiation treatment?

Thanks for query,
The painful lump your father is due to enlargement of lymph nodes in the groin.
These may be secondary metastasis spreading to lymph nodes.
ok and bye.
