Knot under bruise next to hip, not hurting. Is it a lymph node? What should I do?

Hi I have a knot under my bruise . The bruise is on my belt line next to my hip and I have no idea where it came from. My chiropractor says its a lymph node but I need a doctors opinion. It s the size of a pea and it didn t really hurt until maybe a day ago. Is it a lymph node or something else? What should I do? Thanks!

you should consult a doctor so that he can tell you the exact nature of swelling. It is better to get your doubt cleared by checkup and also painless swellings should not be taken lightly because they can be more serious as compared to painful swellings
