recurring lump in groin along with burning pains in legs

  In July I found a lump in my groin area. The size of the lump decreased over the course of a week or so, and as it went down, I had a lot of numbness and burning in my right leg. Then in September the lump returned. This time I did not experience as much pain and it went away in about a week. Since then, the lump has not returned, but I have had pain in the same area as the lump was in along with burning sensations in not just my right leg, but  in my left leg and other seemingly random places on my body. I consulted a doctor and since the lump was not present, she could not make a clear diagnosis. She mentioned the possibility of a hernia, but she was not sure. She also did not understand how the lump and the burning sensations could be related.What's my next step?  I appreciate your time answering my concerns.

I don't see how the lump would be related to the burning sensations in your left leg and the other places in your body, but regarding your right leg, a mass could affect the nearby nerve causing such sensations.  Regarding the lump,  could it have been a lymph node?  Certainly an overall evaluation not only of that area but checking all your nodes is important.  If you are a woman, a gynecologic exam should be part of this.  Regarding the burning, there are sensory syndromes that involve the leg when the nerves are involved.  One common on is "Meralgia paresthetica" where people have numbness and burning in a long pocket-like distribution on the thigh. If these sensations continue, then an evaluation by a neurologist may be helpful.
