Swollen Lymph nodes????

I have had what I believe to be swollen lymph node on the right side of my vagina, between my leg and my vagina.  Has this ever happened to anyone before?
I have a dr's appt today, to get checked out...but I am freaking out, this has never happened to me before.  I had a pap 2 weeks ago, so I know I don't have a disease or anything.

First off pap smears dont test for all STDs. If it is a swollen lymph node then it might be a viral infection. Are you having any other symptoms??? Now I'm not sure if we have lynph nodes there, I've been wondering the same thing.
Also it might just be a cyst, if it's closer to your vagina then it could be a bartholin cyst.
I hope that your Drs appointment gives you good insight!

I went to my drs appt yesterday, everything went well.  I was freaking out for nothing.  We do in fact have lymph nodes in our pelvic area.  What caused mine to swell, was a hair bump, that got infected.  I was given antibiotics to clear it up.  My dr said that your lymph node (vagina) will swell if you have an infection, from your waste down.  This could be a cut on your foot or legs...and your lymph node can swell, because it's working overtime to kill off the infection.
I started taking my antibiotics last night, and the swelling has already started going down....yey!!!!

Just wanted to share this with anyone, who might not be aware of this!!!
As, I am 27 yrs old, and I just learned about this yesterday!

That's good news!! Wow didn't know we have lymph nodes next to our vagina, always thought that it was on our groin area, interesting! Thanks for the update!
