Are there normal lumps in the groin that aren't lymph nodes?
« on: January 25, 2014, 11:21:19 AM »
I feel all sorts of things when I feel around my groin. Mainly in the crease where my legs and abdomen meet. I feel all sorts of lumpy structures and I'm hoping they aren't all lymph nodes. Does anyone else feel this? I have a lymphoma fear and this worries me  ::)

Your doctor has felt them and said you are fine. You have posted many many many times about this. It is not good for your pregnancy to keep worrying. My best advice is to not touch them anymore. If they are lymph nodes you are doing them no favor by irritating them. Please don't think I am being ugly. If you honestly can't get this fear under control you need to speak to your doctor. I feel lups and bumps in the crease of my leg. If your doctor was concerned she would have done something. You should speak to a therapist as you can cause yourself to go into early labor.

There is something called lipomas that can imitate swollen lymph glands.
As the previous writer stated to not feel around so much. It can aggravate the issue.

I felt around in my groin and there are lumps in mine too.  Try to relax Hun, and enjoy your pregnancy!

Thanks for the replies. That makes me feel a little better. I'm wondering if some of what I'm feeling are fatty deposits, like lipomas, but I feel so many things in there that I have a hard time believing there would be that many lipomas in one spot.

I had more blood work done today at my OB appointment. My CBC all came back normal, so hopefully that should be enough to somewhat ease some of my lymphoma fears....
