Your description of a lump in the inguinal / femoral area that decreases when you lie down, and increases when you stand is a classic description of a "hernia". This term refers to the protrusion of a part of abdominal content (usually intestine) through a weak spot on the abdominal wall. Surgical correction of the abdominal wall defect is usually required. Please have a surgeon evaluate you quickly. All the best, and God Bless!
It is in my left inguinal/groin area. There is a lump under the skin about 1' in diameter. It is very tender to the touch and hurts when I walk. Is this something I need to have checked out?
The fact that you mention the cough test for a physical was OK gives me the indication that you have not had your doctor mention a hernia to you. I had lived with intermittant swelling (lump) in the right inguinal region. Unlike you I had eperienced some discomfort at times while lifting things at work. I used to be a heavy duty mechanic shop foreman. Having had many medical examinations for other problems the possibility of a hernia was never brought out by either my doctor or myself.
You can sometimes do a quick check for more nodes in the same area but also at neck and underarms -- otherwise I wouldn't waste mental energy in worry.
I have a lump tender to the touch on the right of my groin, in the pubic area or slightly to the left. just curious if anyone may know anything about it? Ive read alot about hernias and inguinal especially and Im just not sure. The pain is there but only noticeable to the touch and maybe slightly when i sit. Please someone help me with some info here. Kind of beginning to worry especially after wife says it could be potentially life threatening?!
I did shave about a month ago but I seem to get them every now and then in different spots in the groin area. Does this sound like an ingrown hair, or folliculitis or ans STD?

Genitourinary tract infections can result in swelling of the lymph nodes in the groin area. The itchiness in the inguinal area can be a result of a skin infection, especially if there is appearance of rashes. Even skin infection can result in swelling of the lymph nodes. Frequent scratching can result in secondary bacterial infection, making the swelling more prominent.
, gonococcal infection, herpes simplex virus, syphilis, chancroid, granuloma inguinale, lymphogranuloma venereum etc), infection in foot, dermatitis in pelvic area, boils in pelvic area etc. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Hey, Have been getting pain normally in my left side just above the groin area for about 1 month now. It comes and goes sometimes it can be quite painful and other times its just a bit annoying. Sometimes the pain then moves across to the right side and again in can be painful or not but it is never as bad as the left side. The other day I noticed a lump on my pubic area it seems to be quite red underneath the skin but appears only slightly red on the surface.

The lymph nodes in the groin (femoral or inguinal lymph nodes) may swell from an injury or infection in the foot, leg, groin, or genitals. In rare cases, testicular cancer, lymphoma, or melanoma may cause a lump in this area. Glands above the collarbone (supraclavicular lymph nodes) may swell from an infection or tumor in the areas of the lungs, breasts, neck, or abdomen. Common sites for swollen lymph nodes camera include the neck, groin, and underarms.
Did you have genitourinary tract infection or trauma recently? Lump in the scrotum could be due to hydrocele, hematocele, epididymal cyst, neoplasm, or spermatocele. I agree with your decision to seek consult with your physician for proper evaluation and management.
So I'm pretty regular other than the inguinal nodes which are about the size of the tip of my pointer finger; about 1 centimeter in diameter; and the node in my armpit which is about the size of a pea. They are all move-able and not rock hard but sort of firm like rubbery and they don't stick out, you can just feel them. UPDATE: I have posted this once before in allergies by accident but in no luck I came here.
Hi there I have a lump in inguinal area. Lower abdomen right side. Approximately half in inch round. I was able to press it into my abdomenal wall but in the last week or so I have been unable to do that any longer. When I lay flat it would go in through abdomanal wall easily, but not any more. When I stood up in the morning it would come out again but now its out all the time. I do have an aching sensation at times there which makes me think it may be a hernia. Anyone any ideas. Ursa.
I am 28 years old. At 25 I discovered a lump in my groin area very similar to a hernia except it only showed up during ovulation, middle of cycle. I have seen many doctors who cannot diagnose it. It is 1 inch above pubic bone, 2 inches away from crease in leg.It shows up on left side only, sometimes back to back months but occasionally skipping a month. Due to the fact that this was unable to be diagnosed I tried to get pregnant.
4 weeks ago I discovered a 1cm hard round lump in a gland located in my inner thigh (groin?) area. I had been to the doctors office for repeated yeast infections so he perscibed diocyclin for a possible infection which may have caused the swollen gland. Not to make a mountain out of a mole hill <wink>, but 7 days later on the diocyclin I've noticed the lump has changed from a small round lump to a more oblong lump. It runs about 3cm long by about 1cm wide.
I hope by now you seen a DR but maybe not. You are a bit vague as to the location of the lump. If it in within the inguinal canal it could be a hydrocele (google-able) If it is just under the skin or deeper, lets say, it could a lymph node issue. Anyway it needs looked over by some DR.
Almost three month now I noticed a swelling in my pubic arera Swollen lymph nodes in the groin, above the crease which divides thigh from abdomen, the pubicPubic lice area. Naturally, noticing a lump or swelling provoked concern. But that concern quickly lessened when I saw that this swelling seemed to ?disappear? overnight. That is, when I awoke there was no swelling, no lump,the left and right pubic areas were symmetrical. But within a few minutes of standing the swelling would appear. It?
but started growing and growing and in the past moths when I stood up for a long time a lump would fell trough the spermatic cord, but when I laid down it went in my body, and couldn't see it or feel it any more. But now every time I stand up it comes down and it's almost the same size as my testicle and it hurts sometimes, and every time i lay down it goes away.
If you developed infection secondary to shaving, you may have enlarged lymph nodes in the inguinal area. There are also times when patients develop enlargement of the inguinal lymph nodes when they have genital tract infection. it would be best to have yourself seen by your doctor for proper evaluation and management. Good luck.
Thanks for the clarification. From your description, the lumps are in your inguinal area. It could have resulted from a previous infection. Repeated infections or chronic infections would tend to increase the size of the lymph nodes in that area. You should have it examined though so that an appropriate intervention can be given. Good luck.
My husband started having pain in the pelvic abdomen area, then a day later he found a lump on his right testicle. He has a appointment with a doctor. But just wondering if anyone else may have had this problem or knows what this could be, he is very worried and scared. He does lift a lot of weight so could be herina. But hoping someone could help us?
I have a lump and its odd its down in the groin area but not on the penis or testicals themselves it seems to be right on the edge of the "bag" if you will it's maybe the size of a dime and when I attempted to pop it as I first assumed it was a pimple of sorts I found attention like that hurts alot thought if I leave it be I feel nothing about 99% of the time.
It is not uncommon to have fat containing inguinal hernia which is benign. Also lipomas can also occur in that area that is also a benign finding. Lymphadenopathy would certainly need to be ruled out in the case of a lump that you feel but it seems that CT did not detect any enlarged lymph nodes. CT is probably the most accurate in this case.
