Lumps in the pelvic area. Need to go to emergency?

I have, just a week ago, noticed two pea sized lumps on the left of my pelvis/groin area. They feel like they are attached, so I believe they are lymph nodes. One it above the other, near eachother. I'm wondering what this is, as I am going to be going to an urgent care to get a look at as I do not have a primary care physician at the moment.

Hello and welcome to HCM,

It is evident from your description that the lumps are due to lymph node enlargement.
Lymph node enlargement are seen in a variety of inflammtory conditions and in neoplastic conditions.
If there is a previous history of infection of the genitourinary tract or any other site on the lower limb, this enlargement can be due to that.

However, a fine needle aspiration cytology and/ or biopsy is required to know the cuse of such enlargement.

Consult your doctor for clinical examination and relevant investigations.

Thank you and take care.
