swollen lymph node in groin

Hello there,
I am a 19 year old female and i was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection (sinusitis) two days ago- had high fever for 4 days straight and now recently found a small bump in my groin (right side). Could this be because of the infection? I have been taking my medication as prescribed, but around 10pm last night, the fever came back again. I am now starting to freak out- fever PLUS bump?! Any ideas?

Hello,
It can be a swollen lymph node. Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes) is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Other causes include allergic reactions, arthritis, cancer, metabolic diseases, and an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).

It can be due to the viral infection which is causing your sore throat and fever. It should go away once the symptoms subside. If the symptoms persist then please consult a doctor. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
