lump in groin

Hi my partner had a football accident where he ended up taking a blow to the groin area a few weeks back. This resulted in a massive bruise appearing and only just starting to fade. Since doing this he seems to have gained two small lumps in his groin and has been complaining it now hurts the back of his leg to sit down. Do you have any idea ad to what this could be?

Hi!
After an injury, the lumps could be localized collection of blood (hematoma) or abscess (collection of pus). Since it is painful, either they are infected hematomas or abscesses.  
They can also be swollen lymph nodes. Pain in back of thigh can also be due to pinched nerve in lower back. Take care!
