    What causes lump on the thigh?

Hi, I have had a hard lump on my inner thigh for about 6 months if not longer now, it has always been about the size of a small pea untill a couple of days when I woke up and it was slightly swollen and sore. I've just checked it again and it's now about the size of a grape and is getting sorer. I went to the doctors about it ages ago and they couldn't really diagnose anything and said to go back if it changes. I'm booking an appointment tomorrow but I'm sick with worry and could really do with some sleep tonight.... Could you help me please? I'm a 20 year old male.

Hi,Good Evening.Thanks for the query to my HCM virtual-CLINIC.I studied your query in-depth.
-In my opinion-You mostly have a TB-adenitis and needs to be investigated by FNAC biopsy,IGRA Test-(Interferron Gamma Release Test of blood),would confirm the TB.Other causes need to be differentiated-as infectious mono,LG.
Your family Doctor -would treat it with
-Anti-TB drugs for 6-18 mth time.
-Hope this would help to resolve your groin-thigh- lump by discussing with your doctor.
Wishing you fast-recovery.
Wellcome to my HCM Clinic again.Good night.
