Groin itch is seperate from the neck .
In neck you do have enlarged lumph nodes and for that you need to get investigated ---
CBC, ESR (blood tests)
Ultrasonography neck
you may require antibiotics and anti inflammatory for 7 days and then if the nodes have not subsided then you need to get done--'
Fine needle aspiration cytology ie for tissue diagnosis of the lymph node.
