What is the diagnosis for firm and movable lump in groin?

Pea size lump in upper right groin at intersection of thigh and abdomen. Not super hard but firm and moveable. Seemed to pop up rather quick although its not in a area would usually check so may have been there awhile undetected. Possible diagnoses? My thoughts are inguinal lymph node or lipoma
