Hello Kevin, I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.Was this confirmed as a lymph node by your doctor?Do you have any significant past medical history?Are you anxious?
My doctor did not feel anything. I did not know at the time that there was a lymph node there either. I had a lymph node in my groin that was enlarged about 3 months ago. I had an US and then a CT scan. CT scan showed several lymph nodes in groin, all sub-centimeter and none of any concern. Ever since this has taken place, I am obsessed with looking for lymph nodes. No past medical history except for a cyst removed from ear 25 years ago and hypertension. Yes, I am anxious because of the last 3 months dealing with the groin lymph node.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
I guess google is not your friend. I thought that having a lymph node in this area that you can feel is unusual? I consider it small, it is maybe the size of a pea or kidney bean. It is hard to really tell the size as it moves around so much. If you just press down starting at one end of collar bone and work your way up, you can not feel it. I have to move my fingers in a certain up and down motion to find it I think this is probably why my doctor did not feel it as you have to "look for it". I don't think I have any infections or skin issues etc..... Is it still non concerning if i have no skin issues or infections etc......
Thanks for your reassurance. I am on vacation and finding this today has put my mind in overdrive.
