oblong tender lump right in groin
Hi. A while ago I felt a small pea size ball under my skin in the groin, I passed it off as a fatty lump perhaps. Now a couple of months later suddenly I have a oblong lump maybe 4cm long it is very swollen and uncomfortable walking when wearing pants. This flarred up over night, very quick for such a large lump. Any ideas what this could be perhaps ? Thanking you Karen

It could be a lipoma or a lymph gland but you will have to see a doctor to be sure.
