Im 17 and recently have noticed that the lymph nodes in my pubic area right below the waist line are both swollen and tender to the touch. I looked it up and it could be a few possible things, but i know it is not a hernia. I know that when it is swollen it is trying to fight off some kind of infection. And im hoping it is not cancer because one of the diseases associated with these symptoms is lymphoma, but im not sure. But i did notice that i somehow had a large pimple on my penis and im hoping that it has something to do with the swollen lymph nodes and not cancer. Pls someone help!
Good job on doing your research!! It shows that you're a very responsible person.
Growing can cause things to swell. I had swollen lymph nodes in my armpits when I was growing. However, just to be safe, go to the doctor. They can do more thorough tests to rule out anything serious. It's better to be safe than sorry, especially at a young age.
