Suggest remedy for lumps on thigh

Hi. Im 17 and have a marble size lump of my inner thigh next to the groin area. It doesn t hurt at all until i touch it. It seems like it has a purplish head on it but it really cant be seen that great. What do i have? Im worried it might be some form of an std?

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You may have some enlarged lymphnode due to infection or some other cause or you may have some soft tissue tumor. You should go for fine needle aspiration cytology or biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. Then you should take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
