Here is my short story; I am a 34 year old male that is extrememly active. I first noticed a swollen lymph node in my wrist 10 years ago then 5ish years ago a small one on my upper left leg, then 2 years ago a small one on my right forearm.

Here is where the story begins I recently noticed a two small bumps on my lower stomach; thought it was a "sports hernia". I was horsing around a few weeks ago and fell and a massive pain/tightness was in my whole stomach, then it went away and only a pain in the area of the two small bumps. Since I thought it was a hernia I stopped working out, the pain has reduced since then. I got an ultrasound on my stomach and it came back fine then i went to see a surgeon and he said it wasn't a hernia. So I am having a CT scan next week; I am scared as ***l. Not of the CT scan but of the possibility of something wrong with me like cancer or something.

My symptions: Lower abdomen pain/general discomfort
Oh plus my testies/balls are sore (feel slightly swollen)
But that is really it for symptons for now, my surgeon told me that it wasnt anything to worry about...he told me actually to go back to the gym no issues? I am staying away from the gym for now.

Any ideas/thoughts??
