Lumps In The Groin Accompanied By Late Menstruation?
sorry I want to ask, I’m a 17-year-old woman. this month I missed my period 10 days, and 2 days ago a lump appeared around the groin. bumps are not visible but felt when touched, and more felt when lying down. and the bumps are painful, itchiness and redness in the surrounding area. are these symptoms of serious illness? I was afraid to talk to my mother
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Late menstruation in women of reproductive age is most often caused by pregnancy, therefore, if you have a history of previous sexual relations, you should do a pregnancy test with a test pack first. Check with urinating first in the morning so that the results are more accurate and make sure you follow the instrument's instructions carefully so that no misreading occurs. If the result is positive, then menstrual delays are caused by pregnancy, if it is negative, you can try to repeat the examination 3-7 days afterward if menstruation is not yet.
If the results remain negative or if you do not have a history of previous sexual relations, then the cause of delay in menstruation is another thing, for example:
excessive weight or too little
an increase or decrease in body weight that is too fast
thyroid hormone disorders
other diseases such as diabetes, celiac disease
use of hormonal contraception
Lumps in your groin may not be related to menstrual disorders that you experience. Causes of lumps in the groin include:
enlarged lymph nodes, can be due to various causes, for example infections in the surrounding skin (for example, if itching in your groin area is caused by certain infections), infections of the urinary tract and reproductive organs, infections of the leg area, infections of the lymph nodes themselves, lymph node tumors or metastases / spread of tumors from other places
hernia or protrusion of the intestine out
Benign skin tumors such as lipomas
pus or abs bag under the skin
Although at your age the possibility of serious diseases such as tumors are quite rare, it is better to still do a doctor's examination to find out more clearly the cause of menstrual disorders and lumps in your groin.
Some things you can do right now:
maintain ideal body weight
if you are gaining or losing weight, do it more slowly
do regular exercise but don't overdo it
compress the lump in your groin with a warm compress
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
