Can hemorrhoid cause a swollen groin lymph node?

I have a swollen lymph node on the left side of my groin and a few days ago I had severe itching around my anus so I looked in the mirror and saw an enlargement of the skin from my anus to the top of my taint. It was like a hard lump but also had a blister looking thing towards the top of my taint with white spots that looked like pus a little. I've been taking warm baths And the itching and most of the swelling has gone down but now I have a swollen lymph node in my groin. Is the swollen lymph node related to this hemorrhoid ?

Hi and sorry the late reply. I dont believe they are related. Hemmerroids are a balloned out peice of tissue in the anus and nodes are a filer for infection. Ive never heard of a hemorrid getting infected but i guess it could. If your worried best to see a doctor esp if you have a swollen node in that area. Proably nothing but best to have it checked out
Let us know how your doing.

Thank u. Does it sound like it is a hemorrhoid or could it be a herpes outbreak? I do have hsv 2 but I don't think I've ever had an outbreak. Maybe my stress caused it.. But it looked more like a swollen long lump of skin from my anus to the top of my perineum and at the top there was a blister looking thing with white spots and I think that's what was really itchy. Maybe I had both at the same time :O

Well the itching is a hemorrhoid symptom if that helps.

I've had the same thing happen to me for the last 10 years and no doctor can figure out why I get a hemorrhoid's and swollen lymph nodes in my groin (both sides) at the same time and they go away at the same time.  Sometimes I feel like I have burning in my uppers lungs as well.  Someone mentioned it might be due to pelvic sluggishness.  You might try acupuncture to move the energy in your abdomen.
