I'm just about 24 y.o. male 6'2” 225. My condition, I woke up Nov 06 with a lump in my groin, went to the doc, I had an abscess. I also had enlarged lymph nodes bilaterally. Blood work showed no elevated WBC. Every thing else was normal. Had a c/t scan on lowers. Nothing showed up. I had an I and O, bandaged it for a few months and it didn't heal. Had another one and a biopsy on the lymph nodes. No cancer or anything showed up. Cultured the drainage, I only remember the ococis at the end of it. Bandaged it, wet dressings changed twice a day. It healed up after a while but I still have enlarged lymph nodes both sides, not painful. It's been over a year since the first symptoms showed up and I'm thinking about going to the doctor again or a different doctor, but I haven't been able been able to get a diagnosis or get the nodes to shirk so I can't feel them anymore. Also the nodes are from BB size to small peanut size. I've also tried a few different antibiotics. I would like to just get any ideas to suggest for possible causes. Thanks in advance.

  • Call the same doctor and get a copy of the culture "_____ocosis". Take it to another doctor.

  • Hello there. I would like to know what your results where. I had the exact same problems that you have and have given up going to doctors.
