We do have lymphnodes somewhere in that general area, but theexact location escapes me. Check your lymphnodes on your neck and underarms. If they feel tender too, then I'd say you've found your other lymphnodes! AS for why they might be swollen, that's anybody's guess. You could be getting sick- a virus or something. I wouldn't worry too much unless the pain increases or you notice other symptoms.
We have a lot of lymph nodes all over our bodies including in the groin area. Chances are you are fighting an infection if the nodes are swollen and painful but if it continues please go to your doctor. There are other reasons for swollen nodes other than infection. Take care!
