What causes lump under muscle?

I have about 3-5 lumps under the skin on each muscle on each side of my groin. On each side they are in about a 2in square. They don't hurt and cant really move around. They also don't hurt. Size is about 1/4 - 3/8inches . They seem to be more flat than round.

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
You may have some enlarged inguinal lymphnode. It can be due to reactive hyperplasia, tuberculosis, lymphoma, metastatic carcinoma or some soft tissue tumor. You should go for fine needle aspiration cytology or biopsy of that lump. It will give you exact 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.
