Brief Answer:
Lumps in groin could be lymph nodes

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I need to know more details about the lumps, so that I am better able to help.

Can you describe the lumps? Are they hard or soft, moveable or fixed, increasing in size, changing shape, colour? Are there any other associated symptoms?
In medical history you have stated that a biopsy has been done. Can you upload the reports of the biopsy or let me know the reports by writing it in your reply?

Waiting for your reply.

My lumps are hard and movable and irregular in shape. Had the biopsy when I was in my 20's. I do not have access to those reports anymore. I'm just scared because I had to have a needle biopsy before. It is probably nothing.

I know it's lymph nodes in my groin . But I am not sick so I don't understand why they would have lumps. Why do I have a hard, movable and small lump between my V that is the point of my ribs.

Could my medicines have a role in this? I am also not having my period . Haven't for quite a while.

Brief Answer:
Lumps can have many causes

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

From your description the lumps seem benign. And these can happen in multiple places. The one at v maynot be lymph node but it maybe a lipoma or related to breast lumps. Need a biopsy to confirm it.

Lumps can have many causes.

Medicines can be one of the causes. Among the medicines that you are taking, I suspect lamotrigine to cause lymphadenopathy and dysmenorhea. In general, the medicine that interferes with normal hormones may have caused your lumps. Kindly let me know that after starting which medicine, did your periods stop.
