Swollen lymph node

I'm not sure if I should be posting this here since im pretty sure I dont have lymphoma, but I wasn't sure where else to post my question. This morning i discovered a lump im my inguinal lymphnodes. It is about a centimeter in diameter, tender, and mobile. There is no redness or any abnormal appearance on the skin over the area. I do not currently have any illnesses or infections. Is this something I should be worried about or should I just keep an eye on it?

Hi.
Most of the time, lymph nodes in the inguinal area are caused by infections in the genitourinary tract.  
It would be best to consult your doctor for proper evaluation and management.
Good luck.
