Thanks for your question
Since how long you have this
Just noticed it a couple of weeks ago! cant really tell yet if there is any growth or not! it seems like it could be part of a muscle or something from lifting weights!
Does it get hard if you contract your muscle or change position of your leg
Yes if I stand on my leg it gets hard! if i pick my leg up you can still feel it a little bit but it gets soft!
is that mobile?
Hello you there
What do you mean mobile?
can you move it from side to side or from above downward if you hold it between your thumbs and fingers.
Maybe a little bit! but not enough to really tell for sure
It doesnt feel like its moving
any other swelling in the body or any swelling near by.
Not that i have noticed!
sorry for the delay, some system error
Thanks for your info
No problem im still here
Based on your symptoms there can be few causes for this swelling. This can be a lump arising from a muscle, inguinal hearnia, inguinal lymph node, lipoma etc
What do you recommend? does it sound serious to you?
You need to see your GP initially to get it examined and get yourself investigated by blood work up, and other investigations like FNAC in case of lymph node, Ultrasound in case of hernia, etc etc
Well with your age and symptoms i donot think that it will be anything dangerous
but definitely doctor doing and examination and investigations will be able to decide this
I think get an opinion & hopefully there will be nothing serious
Do you want to ask anything else
please feel free
That answered most of my questions like i said i was just kinda curious! There is no pain or anything! Is there any other information you have
Thanks for the input
What could be some of the problems i might run into with lymph nodes
Well i think we have discussed most of the things. I will just say that you should get it examined soon. Definitely not an emergency but see a doctor and get a diagnosis so that you could get treated
If its a lymph node then it can be anything ranging from infection(less likely because of no pain but many infections have no pain also when chronic), Lymphoma(again not likely) etc
Well it is less likely to be a lymph node, if it is then it can be drainage site for some problem near by
well i donot think so
so donot worry much
i hope this helps you
Donot worry you will be fine soon and hopefully there will be nothing serious
i wish you good luck
