burning over gland area
hi doc. I have this burning feeling over a gland area i had it for about 4 or 5years now It was first in the upper part of my groin but it dissapeared now it has started more to the lower part.
my gland are not swollen. it appears then it goes away and goes on like that the whole time.
Can it be cancer like non hodginses disease or cancer of the lymph nodes.
i dont have fever or night sweats.
why did the burning sensation move because if i rub with my finger over my skin its very sensitive.
And how long before non hodginses disease reaches stage 5.

please help

Worried, the fact that it’s been there for 5 years seems to suggest that it isn’t cancer or an acute infection. The problem is that i can’t really say what it is from this side of the screen without being able to examine you first. The best would be to see your doctor and have a diagnosis made. Good luck.
