Thank you for asking!
Groin pains with lumps( most likely a lymph node) needs a little examination and work up to sort out. Could be an infection like lymphadenitis, epididymitis. orchitis, tuberculosis and could be some infectious and infiltrative proccess of sexuall transmissible diseases like chancres of syphilis etc.
Get to an infectious disease specialist and get yourself assessed.
Take care
