Most probably lymph nodes

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short.
To recapitulate: Male/67 - 2 lumps - inside thigh area - outside the groin crease - are uncomfortable...

Please give additional information for me to assist you better:
- Since when are the lumps present?
- Was there any injury to the lower limb, may be even trivial recently?
- Does the pain increase on pressure?
- What about the size, shape, mobility, skin condition above?
- Any other information that you would like to share?

As per the short history that you have provided, these look to be the lymph nodes of the vertical chain of the inguinal lymph node group.

I would advise you the following:
To get a clinical evaluation and examination preferably by a General Surgeon.
Get a course of an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines.
If there is no regression, high resolution ultrasonography and FNAC that is fine needle aspiration cytology to confirm the diagnosis and get an appropriate treatment.

I hope this answer helps you to get an early diagnosis and proper treatment.
Please feel free to give the feedback on the questioned requested for, and ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.

I found the lumps yesterday, most discomfort. When I walk or lift. No skin discoloration around nodes but I work hard daily lifting moving boxes in my fruit business. Lumps are tender to the touch, have history of lipoma but not 2 in same areas. Thanks
