Lump in right groin

HI All,

About 4 weeks ago I felt pain near my right groin. It was sore to touch, the entire area as very tender. A day later it hurt just to walk. A day after that, a lump appeared out of nowhere and was sore to touch. It was about 1.5-2cm. I also started to notice that there was a slight redness just below where the lump was and that was also a bit sore.

After a few days, the pain went away, redness went away but the lump stayed.

After 4 weeks, the lump has reduced in size slightly (but not by much) and it's sort of a hardish texture.

I went to my GP and he had a look and reckons it's too low to be a lymph node and might be some sort of cyst, so he got me going for a Ulstrasound tomorrow.

However, I don't know if he's on the right track. As far as I know, a cyst is slow growing, but the lump I had appeared out of nowhere within 1-2 days. I still think it's my lymph node in my right groin area. Is an Ultra Sound a waste of time, should I get a second opinion?

Also, I feel fine. No weight loss, no itching, no other enlarged lymph nodes, no night sweats - I feel pretty normal.

Anyone had something similar? Anyone know what it could be. I'm a little concerned that he thinks it could be a cyst in my groin because it doesn't make any sense at all. Sounds like a lymph node to me.
