I have a swollen lymph node in my groin for 1-2 weeks. it's uncomfortable and just recently started experiencing testical pain. I took antiammflamatories for the node but it did nothing. Could it be cancer of some sort? I don't really have any other symptoms it's just all in my groin area. Any insight would be very appreciated. Thank you
The area needs to be examined. It appears to be an infectious cause rather than malignancy. Urinalysis should be examined and testes should be examined. Antibiotics can be advised accordingly , if required.
