Are there lymph nodes in the upper inner thigh

Customer Question

Do you have lymph nodes in your upper inner thigh? Or just in your groin area? If so where in the thigh are they located?

This is a diagram of the lymph nodes in your body....

The inguinal lymph nodes are confined to the groin area and are usually not seen in the upper thigh region.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
So they are just in the groin not in the thigh?

This might an even better picture....

I just saw your second question, yes, you can have lymph nodes in any part of your legs, arms, anywhere, but the main lymph nodes in the upper groin (inguinal) are confined to the groin.
