Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

The lump is most likely an inguinal lymph node which gets enlarged secondary to any infection in the leg and foot area, However any lump in the body should be thoroughly evaluated to rule out anything concerning so i would recommend you to get it examined thoroughly by a doctor for exact diagnosis.

Massage the lump with olive oil regularly.

Hope this helps.
