Lymph nodes swollen

I have hpv and have had a colposcopy where it showed nothing alarming. I went in 6 months later I still have hpv and have another colposcopy on Monday. About two days ago I got swollen lymph nodes in my groin that are painful to the touch. I am so terrified its cancer. I am going crazy :( I just want to know ..

Hello,
This kind of lump can be a swollen lymph node, a sebaceous cyst or a boil. Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes) is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection along with other numerous causes. Sebaceous cyst is a closed sac or cyst below the surface of the skin that fills with a white, semi-solid material called sebum produced by sebaceous glands of the epidermis. It is usually painless but can become painful if infected. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle be staph aureus.
What exactly is this can be diagnosed only after examination.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
