So, my boyfriend went to the emergency room a couple of weeks ago. His brother is a PA. He went to his brother first about this lump in hie groin area. His brother looked at it along with two other PA's working that day. They thought it was a hernia. So, that evening he went to the emergency room. The doctor there looked at it and didn't believe it was. He asked if my boyfriend had gotten scratched from a cat. Of course he has, so have I (I have a kitten). And said it was probably from that and gave him some antibiotics. I have a few question:
1-How come I'm not effected by the scratches?
2- He gets a little sore in that spot sometimes. Does having a cat scratch stay sore that long?
3-It was only swollen for a few days.. is that normal for the cat scratch?
4- Are either of these a correct diagnosis???
