Reason for lumps in the groin area?

Hello, I noticed a few lumps in my groin where my leg meets my trunk while shaving about 9 months ago. They are painless and stationary, and have since spread and multiplied to all five lymph sites. I have had fatigue and extreme weight loss as well as unusually itchy skin. I also have several wart like bumps in my groin, chest, and neck, and no matter what I try they will not budge and have also multiplied. I have also noticed a few odd shaped, flat brown spots that are uneven.
what could this be? Thank you!

Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

Lymph nodes in the groin most probably suggest genital infection. Itchy skin suggests fungal infection of the groin area which is also called tinea cruris which is very common in those areas due to increased sweating. Warts are also common in those areas due to papilloma virus infection and these seem to be plain warts which can be easily treated.
I suggest you get in touch with a skin doctor and get appropriate treatment for the fungal infection and get the warts removed.
Thanks.

If a Dr wants to discuss your pap smear is it HPV related? Or Cancer related? Im quite anxious and didn't like the previous answer from the Dr on here.

Hi, I am 27 years old I just received a LSIL result for a recent pap test. I was told that it is is very likely that this could be due to an HPV infection, though they did not test for HPV, and this does not necessarily indicate cancer. I've done some research and I'm fairly okay with what I've found out but what I'm really wondering about is how this will affect my long-term relationship with my boyfriend. What are the implications of this for him in terms of his health? From what I've researched it doesn't seem that he can be tested for HPV, is this correct? Furthermore, since we've been together and sexually active together for quite awhile, is it safe to assume that if I have HPV, he does as well? Do we need to abstain from all sexual activity until this resolves itself? Thank you.
