Lumps in groin, not STD. Any thoughts?

I am a healthy 26 year old female. About four months ago, I noticed two lumps in my groin area where my leg meets the torso. The lumps are next to each other. One is the size of a pea, the other the size of a quarter. There has been no change in size. They are not visible and can only be felt when I stand. There is no chance that I have an STD and have had no negative symptoms( weight loss , fatigue , etc). I have an appointment in ten days but my worrying is getting the best of me. Any thoughts on what it might be? Of course, I fearing the worst--convened it might be lymphoma . Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

The area you defined is called popliteal area which carry many lymph nodes ,these two unilateral lumps are enlarged nodes and could be due to any infection mostly and should be biopsied to exclude other diseases also. you should contact with near by physician and then let me know the result.
