Ok so I have had this lump under my testicals inner thigh I would say in the pudendal nerve area for about almost two years its not that noticable unless you see it from my point of view it its kinda pointy but it feels like a ball and when I spread my legs it separates a little it spreads towards the buttocks it doesn't hurt just flares up though and I got it after shaving and/or having unprotected sex so I thought it was a std or swollen lymphnode my question is are lymphnodes right there and if not could it be a cyst? Also when I first got it it was itchy

Lymph nodes are present in the in inguinal region and they can be enlarged if there is an infectious focus in vicinity. The swelling needs to be examined and palpated to determine if its a node or extra growth. If it is amenable to resection then it can be removed to determine the histopathological diagnosis. STD panel can be offered if there is suspicion and a positive sexual history along with painful inguinal lymphadenopathy.
