extreme pain in lymph groin

Am 43 and have a throbbing pain in groin lymph nodes--usually one side, extremely so in both around period.

had mono diagnosis three months ago, but have had painful lymph for nodes like this for years. always thought it was ovarian pain related to cycle, but learned it's my lymph nodes with the mono. family has history of lymphoma.

Ear Nose Throat doctor said groin lymph glands stick out on women who are thin, like me. Is this the case? Should they hurt so much?

I've experienced really painful lymphnodes during a case of mononucleosis, as well. The current symptoms might be related to the mono. If you want a second opinion, however, I suggest that you see an oncologist directly. My grandfather passed away from lymphoma and it's a quick acting illness. The lymph nodes are transporters for the rest of the body and if cancer is present, it will spread. I hope that this helps! Please check back.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This could be due to infection in the urogenital region. I would suggest you to have work up for STDs.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
