I am a 19 year old female and I noticed a lump in my left inguinal region about a year ago. It causes no pain, however it seems to be slowly getting larger. I noticed recently that my lymph glands around the lump are swollen to the point that I can feel the ttexture of the lymph glands through my skin. Again, there is no pain with the lump. The only pain I have experienced has been an achy/uncomfortable feeling in my left inguinal area. This pain usually only occurs if I press on the lump rather firmly and try to move it around. I dont understand what this lump could be since it has been there for some time and causes no pain.
I would greatly appreciate any thoughts or opinions regarding this lump. Thank you.
