There is no relation of groin lymph nodes with high bilirubin levels.
The levels of bilirubin you mentioned seems unbelievable in the present context of your symptoms.
Kindly verify the levels of bilirubn.
You have not mentioned the the virus which was detected in past.
The causes of swelling of lymph nodes in groin area are generally because of
Infection in feet,legs,pelvic area
Sexually transmitted diseases
Normally these swollen lymph nodes disappear in two weeks time however ,if they persist or increase in size or get accompanied by night sweats,fever,weight loss then you should consult your doctor for the investigations.

Dear Jonesgym,
I thinkk you are not presenting a right picture of things.
First concern is your raised bilirubin. 49 level is abnormally high, with this level you are not expected to be in sound health. This level suggests serioious Jaundice. It needs to be evaluated. Visit a hepatologist or gastroenterologist to get full evaluation done.
Regarding groin lymph nodes, sometimes they are normal as they occur after some infection in the foot in the past. but such nodes are hard. if they are big and are softer or rubery in consistency one of them needs to be biopsied or a Fine needle aspiration test should be done to rule out the cancerous problem particularly lymphoma.
