Swelling Of The Lymph Nodes In The Right Groin, Which Is Painful?
Is an anal fissure causing the lymph nodes in my right groin to be slightly swollen and painful? Thank you very much doctor
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lymph nodes (lymph nodes) are the shelter and proliferation of blood cells that play a role in maintaining immunity. These glands are found in almost all parts of the body, but the ones that are easier to check with external examination are around the neck, armpits, and groin.
Painful swelling of the lymph nodes in the right groin most likely indicates inflammation, also known as lymphadenitis. The triggers for this inflammation can vary, including:
Local infection of the lymph nodes in the groin, for example tuberculosis, syphilis, lymphogranuloma venereum, genital herpes.Infections in other organs where lymphatic drainage flows to the lymph nodes in the groin, for example: Cellulitis in the legs Pelvic inflammatory disease Anal abscess Urinary tract infection Proctitis (inflammation rectum) Peritonitis (inflammation of the lining of the abdominal cavity) Cat scratched around the groin, lower legs, lower abdomen Tumors, can be in the lymph nodes themselves or in other organs in the abdominal cavity, pelvis, and lower legs Side effects of drugs, for example phenytoin, etc. Anal fissures alone should not cause swelling of the lymph nodes. However, wounds around the anus and rectum due to anal fissure can make the sufferer more susceptible to infection. This infection is likely what triggers lymphadenitis.
However, it does not rule out other causes of lymphadenitis as mentioned above, which trigger swollen lymph nodes in your groin. Therefore, you should check with your doctor directly so that you can get the best treatment. It could be that the doctor will suggest that you undergo a laboratory examination or a tissue biopsy to find out the cells that make up the lymph nodes.
At this time, don't touch the swollen lymph nodes too often. Always wear clothes that are comfortable, not tight, and also clean. If the gland feels painful, compress with warm water. Don't forget, always keep your immune system by regularly eating nutritious foods, exercising diligently, and taking regular breaks.
Hope it helps ..
