Hard lymph node in groin

Hi I am 31 years old, and a little over a year ago I noticed a swollen lymph node in my groin. It is not painful at all, but it is about the size of a gumball or a marble. It is hard, and I can definitely feel it even with jeans on. I am always tired, but have contributed that to having 3 little ones and husband working nights. Forget, or block it out with a busy schedule and trying to take care of the kids and work but it's always in the back of my mind. Then I always talk myself out of going to the Dr, thinking it's probably nothing. Any thoughts? Thanks.

While it is unlikely that a single non-enlarging lymph node (over the course of a year) is due to lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes), it is not completely impossible. You should, therefore, ask your doctor to have a look at it, and decide whether or not a biopsy is in order.
