Lymph node in groin
« on: December 14, 2013, 03:05:21 PM »
I have a smallish, hard lymph node in my right groin. I noticed it for the first time almost 2 years ago. The doctor I saw confirmed it was a node, but said that it is small and has been there for years and that he isn't concerned. He asked if it had been getting bigger and I said no, but I can't really be sure! I have had low platelets for years now, and that is why I saw this doctor (hematologist/oncologist) in the first place. He said he sees a lot of patients my age with low platelets and when I asked if the chances of me having lymphoma were slim, he said they are virtually zero. That was before he felt the node (after I asked him to), but still said he is not concerned. I was feeling happy this morning, so naturally my mind is going this route....anyone with some experience in this area??? PLEASE share if so...

I have nodes in my groin. I have had it examined numerous times and told it is Of no cOncern and is pea sized or smaller.

Haematologists diagnose cancer so if there was anything to worry about they would not have said all ok.
