Good morning Nafisaa.
Lumps in the groin can be caused by many things, you must first find out about the history of the disease and the symptoms experienced and a thorough physical examination to be able to diagnose it. The causes of lumps in the groin include, enlarged lymph nodes, the occurrence of hernias, certain types of infectious diseases, a disease called saphenous varix, tumors, etc. In addition, it is also necessary to pay attention to the size, location, color, and consistency of the lump. Here's a more detailed explanation of the possibilities of a lump in the groin:
1. Enlarged lymph nodes. is one of the most common causes of lumps. These glands are found throughout our body, including the groin area, generally enlarged lymph nodes are caused by bacterial or viral infections or because of a history of injury and tumors.
2. Cyst. Cysts are lumps that are generally fluid-filled and can appear anywhere on the body.
3. Hernia. A hernia is a condition in which the intestines / gastrointestinal tract secretes from the lining of the abdominal area due to a history of injury or other conditions that cause the abdominal wall area to be pushed by this part of the intestine. there are various kinds of types that are most commonly experienced by men, namely inguinal hernias, and femoral hernias in women.
4. Abscess. An abscess is a lump filled with pus, which can be triggered by inflammation. Generally, these abscesses are caused by Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria and can appear anywhere.
5. Hydrocele. This disorder can be experienced by men, where there is a buildup of fluid around the testicles, generally painless and dangerous, can only cause discomfort due to enlarged sac size.
6. Sexually transmitted diseases. A lump in this area can also be a sign of a sexually transmitted disease such as syphilis, gonorrhea, etc.
7. Saphena varix. is a rare condition where there is an abnormality in the venous valve, namely the saphenous vessel where the valve cannot open, resulting in a buildup of fluid / blood. the lump is generally bluish in color. usually occurs in people with a history of varicose veins (enlarged leg veins).
8. Tumor or lymphoma. because lymphocytes (white blood cells) or lymph nodes become enlarged into tumors (benign) or cancer (malignant), a lump in the groin can be a sign of this.
The treatment of this lump can also be different depending on the causes that have been previously mentioned. because each cause has a more specific treatment and different experts. For that we suggest that you can immediately see a doctor so that a more thorough physical examination can be carried out as well as supporting examinations to see the cause of the lump in the groin. If a tumor / cancer is suspected, one of the supporting investigations that may be done is a biopsy, which is taking some of the tissue and fluid from the lump and then microscopically looking at the cells in it whether it is malignant or not.
thank you, hope it is useful
