Swollen sore lymph nodes in the neck. Recurring lump under the skin in the groin. Reason?

Hi, My lymph nodes (my left side) in my neck have been swollen for about a week now. Its only a little sore. Also I have a lump under the skin near my groin & leg area that s pretty tender. That lump comes up about every 3-4 months or so & it s always in the same area. Any idea what this is or what could be causing it?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Lymph nodes in the neck which is of 1 week duration may be due to Acute infection.You can take a Good Antibiotic like Cefpodoxime 200mg twice daily and Anti inflammatory drug for 5-7 days.If they do not subside ,you have to go for Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology(FNAC) and get the exact cause of swelling.
Lump under the skin near your groin may be Enlarged Lymphnode.It should get subsided with the above treatment as well.You should also get examined for Inguinal hernia by your Surgeon.
Wish you good health
