Lump in groin area above vagina, chronic condition, pain on touching. Causes?

My 8 year old daughter is complaining of a lump in her groin area....has been there for about two years. Her last pediatrician didn t seem too concerned at the time before we moved. She commented it hurts to touch it and it seems hard...I didn t want to force push it but its visible. What couldn t be? It s on her top left side above the vaginal area.

General Surgeon 's  Response
Lump in the groin area may be Hernia.It may be Inguinal or Femoral hernia.
Second possibility is a Lymph node,which got enlarged due to infection.
Third possibilty may be a Lipoma,selling arising from fat cells.
Most of them will be diagnosed by Clinical examination.IF there is any doubt,she may be subjected to few investogations like Fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC) and Ultrasound scanning of the swelling and surrounding area.
Please consult a Paediatric surgeon and get her examined.
Wish her good luck.
