Blood blister on leg in groin area. Pops and bleeds. What about pain?

I have a blood blister on my leg in the groin area that keeps coming back. It s about the size of a dime. It eventually pops on its own and bleeds a great deal. It usually takes it a few days after it pops to heal because it keeps pealing the skin back off. After it heals there is a bruise that remains. I also had a electrophysiology study 5 yrs ago an it s in the same area that was performed. Not sure what I can do to keep it from coming back. It also has pain associated with it that I would describe as the same pain u feel when an iv is being inserted into a vein . The sharp burning sting. Hope u can help

1. from the history it seems to be a groin Lump and should be assessed by a doctor as soon as possible.
2. if you have any infection or illness, your groin lump could be a swollen lymph gland which will flare and swell to remove bacteria and foreign particles, and will return to normal once the illness has passed.
3. as there are so many possible causes of a groin lump [pemphigoid bullous, STD's,] your doctor will need to ask you a series of questions, which will include questions about your current health and if you have been suffering from any other symptoms. You may have a blood test to check for signs of infection, and the doctor will feel your lymph nodes for inflammation.
