What causes swollen lymph nodes in the groin area?

I have swollen lymph nodes in my groin area. Embarrassing but I think it is from over doing it a little masterbating to porn. I have no companion at the moment. A man has to do what he has to in this situation. But I may have overdone it and I m worried I damaged something.

Masturbation will not cause swelling of lymph nodes. You might have an infection.

1. Do you have fever?
2. Did you have unprotected sex in the preceding 6 weeks?
3. Any rash/discolouration/discharge?

Please get back with the answers.
