Hello nalaa,


Lumps in the groin and neck can arise due to several possible causes, including:

Lymph node infection
Other infections that cause swollen lymph nodes such as respiratory infections, fever, glandular tuberculosis or skin infections such as abscesses

Hernia
Lipoma or abnormal fat growth
Warts or viral infections of the skin
Other medical conditions

For this reason, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor so that the cause is known. Later, physical and supporting examinations will be carried out such as blood labs, X-rays, ultrasound, sputum samples or biopsy or tissue samples to determine the cause of the lump.


If the complaint of lumps arises accompanied by fever, prolonged cough, weight loss, night sweats, pain, it is necessary to immediately do an examination so that the cause is immediately identified and treated.


May be useful,
