Hello. It just showed up yesterday and is growing incredibly fast. It is about 3 inches in diameter. It is very hard. It is on my upper inside thigh,, beside my groin area but it is not on my groin area. I am going tomorrow to my doctor. No previous illnesses. I am a 24 year old male.

Thank you for the information,

The hard mass in this area is commonly due to an enlarged lymph node.

The pain indicates an inflammation, or an infection.

You need an examination indeed owing to its large size & rapid growth.

Alternatively it can be an abscess in the early stage.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
