lump in the groin, what is it?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Okay so 5 weeks ago a pea sized lump appeared in my groin, it was painful for 3 days but it doesnt hurt anymore, Also for the past 2 months i have been feeling extremly tired, and get headaches nearly everyday. Yesterday my glands in my neck have swollen up and and got a white spot in my throat. I get really itchy all over my body as well. What could it be? Please someone help im only 17 :c

    The only thing I can stress is to go and see your GP. You are obvioulsy worried enough to come here and seek help. Your GP should be your next port of call. I have no idea what it could be but my own GP has always said, a lump is a lump and should always be investigated. It could be a cyst or an infected gland and maybe nothing to worry about. But you won't know unless you get it checked. Nothing to be embarrassed about. As for your neck glands swelling you could have some sort of infection. I would suggest booking a double appointment and tell the receptionist you need to discuss a couple of health worries. Hopefull you will come back soo and let us know how you got on. Good luck.

    I did go to my gp and said that i have had it for ages, and he told me to wait for another 4 weeks but im feeling worse and worse all the time. Specially feeling really tired is quite annoying. But i will let you know how it all goes when i go again smile

    I cannoot understand why a GP would make you wait another four weeks, in my honest opinion this is rediculous. I will check back from time to time to see how you are getting on.

    I am glad, I know if it was my son or my husband and they had a lump I would not rest until it was thoroughly investigated. Even it it turns out to be nothing to worry about it shows you are taking due care in doing something about it. As we all know this is something the health profession is pushing for men and women to be more vigilant in checking for lumps and bumps and doing something about it if one is found. I will check in tomorrow, but it won't be until around 5pm.

    I am so glad you went to see the GP and that blood tests were authorised. It should have been done on your last visit as far as I am concerned. But at least now it is done. Often when one symptom pops up others join the party, kind fo like a free for all. But when you go back for your results I would mention the new lump, that way you are keeping on top of things. Nothing worse than when you go to see a GP and forget to tell them something. Try not to worry, or you will end up summising every illness under the sun is responsible, and that does the brain no good at all. As for the pain under your ribs, I really have no idea what it could be. Stay strong and keep us updated x
