I can't even tell if everything I'm feeling are lymph nodes or not. I'm worried that they are because they are in my groin, and of course any time you google about lumps in groin, everything is about lymph nodes and there is nothing about tendons, fatty deposits, etc...I have been rubbing the area a lot lately so I don't know if I have irritated them and made them larger...

I was told by my doctor that you should not touch the area where the swelling is taking place. (I understand it is a hard thing to do)
SHe stated that perhaps some warm compresses or heating pads and make sure that you are drinking water to flush things through.

I have bursitis in my hips and I have had fibromyalgia for 23 years. I also have a DVT on the left leg (the side where the swollen lymph node is in the groin area). Hence the reason I must wear a compression stocking (it helps with the circulation).

I have read that lymph nodes can fill up with scar tissue and it can feel like it is swollen. I know that I scar quickly and in different places. I have scar tissue in the abdominal area due to blood thinners being injected into that area when I was on blood thinners. I have scar tissue from the dentist doing Novocaine shots into the gum line last year when doing a crown.

I also have palpable lymph nodes in my groin, on both sides. Some are round like a pea, some narrow and long.  MRI showed them as absolutely nothing to worry about.  :winking0008:

I worry because it feels like I have so many. And a lot feel larger than peas. I have been doing a LOT of rubbing on the area so I don't know if that made them bigger or what. I'm not even sure if they are all lymph nodes. is it true that groin lymph nodes can be a little larger and still considered normal?

Yes it is natural that some node can be larger in some people than in others.

Could be trigger points from muscles if you are doing any sort of exercises as well.

I've felt my husband's and I don't feel anything compared to mine....at my last OB appointment I had a bunch of blood work done, including a CBC because they wanted to monitor me for preeclampsia. Everything came back normal. Should that be enough to keep my mind at ease? I've heard conflicting things about lymphoma and blood tests...

I have to say that the fact that you and others are concerned about this has caused my anxiety about this to be amped up.
I feel the groin lump and then I see more.

Let me say that I have node in my groing that is a little less that 2cm, so not huge, but not small either.  I dont know how long it has been there, but I know for sure about six months.  Has not grown.  I also have a coworker with a rather large groing node and actually my boyfriend has one too.  I dont think we all have lymphoma, just saying.  I know its hard, but living with HA, I have learned that your body does not lie, you may ignore, but it does not lie.  If you had something serious going on you would know. 
So rest easy I know its hard, but my doctor told me the other day that the stress from my anxiety is going to kill me way before any disease.  I listened.  She said that constant stress is so hard on your body and it tears at your immune system. So I going to work very hard on bringing it down.
Anyhoo I hope this helps and you realize that groin lymph nodes are common, and although someone had stage 4 and it started witha groin node that the exception and not the rule.  And of course we always feel that we will be the exception, and also I not sure but I the lymph node was likely pretty big when associated with cancer.  I dont beleive you would have to dig around and find it. Just my thoughts.  Good luck.

The Dalai Lama,was most surprised by Man.He sacrifices his health to make money. He sacrafices money for his health,he is so anxious about the future so he does not enjoy the present, he does not live in the present or the future,he thinks he will never die, then he dies having never lived.

Thank you for this post. I needed someone to really put this into perspective for me! I feel little peas sized nodes in my groin but I also feel bigger bumps too...not sure if they are nodes or something else, but of course when you google, all it says about groin lumps is that is has to be lymph nodes...I have been feeling the area obsessively lately and I'm pretty sure I have made many more nodes pop up because of it. Of course my HA mind thinks they have popped up due to lymphoma, but the rational side of me says it's probably from all the constant pressing and rubbing!
