Based on the facts that you have posted a swelling in the groin that you have could be a enlarged lymph node Normally lymph nodes are not palpable.but it gets visible or palpable due to some source of infection in draining area .

Consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical examination to establish diagnosis .He would be best judge to diagnose and decide whether any active treatment is needed or not .

Approximately 6 years ago, I noticed an enlarged lymph node behind my right ear. I went to the doctor and was referred to a specialist who ordered a CT scan and an FNA of the lymph node. The CT scan results were normal. The FNA was indeterminate because there wasn t enough material collected to render results. I was told to watch the lymph node and if it got any bigger to return. I don t think it s gotten any bigger over the past 6 years, but it s possible that it has and I m just not realizing it. Last week, I went to a doctor who, after examination, found a nodule on the right side of my thyroid . He s referred me to an endocrinologist for further testing. Is it possible that the enlarged lymph node behind my right ear is related to the nodule on the right side of my thyroid?

My husband began getting the shakes suddenly on sat night. He spent the evening cold and shaking then sweating profusely and burning hot. He felt unwell on Sunday sweating and aching all over. His lymph nodes are enlarged behind his ears and a strange rash appeared on his head. On mon he went to doctors and had bloods taken and was given doxy and ibrufen. So far sat and sun nights he sweated heaps. Enough to change bed sheets. Today being tues. he seemed a little better had day off work. Sweating was a little less. By this afternoon his forehead and left eye lid had swollen. We raced bk to doctors who gave him telfast. Face looks rather strange. We r in bed now for only 10 mins and sweating has started again. I have never seen anything like this. Any ideas??
