Risk of Lymphoma?

Hello, I'm a healthy 20 year old female.

Over the course of a little less than 2 months, the lymph nodes on my groin have become swollen. They're very tiny and what my doctor has deemed to be "mobile". It was said that it may have become swollen due to shaving near the abdominal area. I felt relieved until 48 hours ago when I noticed that my left hip bone looked as if it was protruding less than my right, and now there is a dull ache in my left hip as well. I do not feel fatigued, nor do I experience night sweats.

I feel anxious since my symptoms keep coming up as "lymphoma" on the Internet.

Do you have any guess as to what it may be, or how I should be going about my symptoms?

Thank you.

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If you recently shaved and your symptoms are already resolving then yes they are likely due to shaving the groin hair. It is normal. it self resolves. Dont be anxious. The symptoms of any grave conditions is different and it is no way near that. Cool down and keep good hygiene measures thats all you need.

I hope it helps.Please take good care of yourself and do as directed.I would advise to stay in touch with your health care provider as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor where a complete evaluation occurs. I will be here if you need me or have any more questions to ask, i would love to answer.

May the odds be ever in your favour.

Take care
