Hi,

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,

The small lump you described is looking like a lymphnode swelling.

The area between the belly button and hip, which is one inch from hip is called inguinal area.

In inguinal area, the lymphnodes will present and usually small.

Enlarged inguinal lymphnode may be seen in barefoot walking due to chance of getting skin infection in legs.

Due to some infections in the draining area of these lymphnodes, the concerned lymphnode will enlarge and palpable as a peanut size swelling in your inguinal area.

Look for any skin infection or ulcer in right lower limb, scrotal area.

Consult your Doctor for the examination of the lump and any skin infection if present and its treatment.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

Regards.
