small lump on the right side of my groin area.

User Profile
Hi, I'm a 18 year old guy I'm very healthy and yesterday I was taking a shower at night and I felt a small lump on the right side of my groin area. It hurts a little bit and I can only feel it if I press into it. It feels like a small bean like shape. The last thing I remember doing in my groin area is shaving my pubic hair, but I shaved it earlier in the day. I've heard things about lymphoma, tumors, or lumps in a groin that is cancerous. I've also heard it can be a benign lump and it isn't cancerous or harmful. What can it be? I'm afraid that it can be cancerous and I couldn't go to sleep at night thinking it might be cancerous

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Swollen lumps in groin after shave are common are mostly razor bumps, so no worries and observe.

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.

I read your question and i understand your concern. It is not lymphoma. Bumps on groin after shaving are very common and self resolve. Just maintain good hygiene and wait and observe.
