I have a .5" lump on the left side of my inner thigh. I think it might be a swollen lymph node. It has been there for over a week, changing shape from small pea to grape size and sometimes feels irregular. I have not had an virus or infection for a while, but I did get back from a very adventorous trip to south america 2 months ago. Could it be related? Also it is just on one side of the thigh, is this normal, or abnormal. Thanks for any insight.

  • Go to the Dr straight away...Nodes can pass infection via the lymphatic system to other parts of the body, ie) popliteal nodes behind the knee, beneath the sternum, armpits etc.....get it checked soon....
