What is the cause of painful lump on the groin with stomach ache and extreme fatigue in one with common variable immune disease ?

I have common vairable immune disease and am on immunoglobin infusions once a week. I have been to the gp with a lump in my groin that has been there about 3 months, I did not want to make a fuss about it unless it started to hurt. I have been reffered straight for a lymph node biopsy . I have tummy pain all the time for the last month, can t really eat much and have been having exhaustion from not doing anything for some time too that is just getting worse. I have to sleep during the day or I cant function. I am 35 in march. I have no other health problems. I am worried that I have cancer now that the gp made a phone call straight away for the lymph node biopsy. she said that node needs removing in the next two weeks. I am so scared and not feeling well anyway and exhausted all the time doesn t help. the exhaustion has been for some time though. just worse in the last few months. I have a constant headache and feel breathless a lot of the time.

Hi, thank for using HCM.

In your case, the only thing to do is to wait until the biopsy is done. The groin is an area where lymph nodes can enlarge for multiple reasons. Infectious disease is one of the more important causes of lymph nodes enlargement. So, you are a young woman. Old Age is risk factor to have cancer. You are young, so in your case is more probable to have a infectious or an autoinmune disease than cancer. But only biopsy could define this. So be patient.
