i have a swollen lymph gland in my left groin when i first went to the doctors i was diagnosed as having a hernia he sent me to a specialist to see if i needed an operation and he said that it wasnt a hernia it was a swollen lymph gland i am going to have a scan done soon but am worried as i dont know what caused this i know that when the i realised the lymph gland i was having sexual intercourse so i dont know if this is the reason also i had a cut on my knee which got infected at the same time on the left leg so the same side as the lymph gland so i dont know if this is the problem however i had antibiotics and the cut cleared away but the gland never resumed normal size. My girlfriend also just got a new kitten for her birthday and after reading other posts i didnt know if i was this "cat-scratch" thing. im really scared as im only 17 and i dont want it to be something like cancer or hiv does anyone know roughly what percentage of these are cancer or hiv ? or anyone think they know why mine wont go. im relatively healthy i play sports around 6ft 11 stone in weight play sport multiple times a week. have only had sexual intercourse with one girl so i dont know wat to think. help?
