Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Painful lumps in the groin can come from the outer skin or other deeper structures. Keep in mind, that in the groin there are many components, ranging from skin, muscles, bones, lymph nodes, and so on. How big is the lump? Does it feel hard or soft?
If the lump was painful and appeared without fever, here are some possibilities:
Skin infections, for example due to folliculitis (hair root infection), warts Skin tumors, for example sebaceous cysts, dermoid cysts, fibromas, lipomas Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes), can be due to infection Tuberculosis, syphilis, cytomegalovirus, HIV / AIDS, lymphoma Inguinal hernia (intestines protruding downwards due to weakening of the abdominal wall) Hypertrophic scars, keloids, etc. Through a direct physical examination, each of the above possibilities can generally be distinguished, so that possible dangerous causes can be identified and treated appropriately. If necessary, a biopsy, ultrasound, or other examination can also be carried out to evaluate more deeply the lump. Therefore, check yourself directly to the doctor, okay?
In order to avoid irritation or secondary infection, do not touch or press the lumps that appear too often. Always clean your groin well in the shower and also wear clean, not tight pants. Avoid exchanging towels or pants with other people. And also avoid applying or applying anything to the lump without the doctor's knowledge.
Hope it helps ya..
