Have swollen thigh near groin area. Feels deep while touching. Getting headache and sweating. Is it swollen lymph?

Hello Im a 19 year old girl who have had this swollen thing in my right thigh. I have had this for about 4-5 years because I have been too scared to go to a doctor do get it checked. It is between my groin and private area and it doesnt hurt and is rather round and visable. When i touch it it feels like its in pretty deep so i can grab it. Lately i have been experiencing headaches and get hot and sweat very easily. (Walking in malls). Thoughts? Is it just a fat lump, swollen lymph or anything else?

Thanks for the query,

It might be a swollen lymph node.

It gets enlarged in even mild infections

Some times the lymph node remains swollen even after the infection subsides.

Dont worry it will not remain persistant.

Just keep a watch, if it increases in size, you must meet a doctor.

Better get an ultra sound examination done.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
