Ok, I have no idea what I am dealing with here. I am an 18 year old straight male. A few days ago I noticed a had a lump under my skin, maybe an 1/2 inch or so big, it is right on the crease of my leg down by my groin. It was a little swollen and tender to the touch. So I went online and looked around... I thought maybe it could be a hernia (i do a lot of lifting at my job) or maybe a swollen lymph node(spelling?) but I didn't think it was herpes.
Now, A few minutes ago I decided to check my lump again, and on the top of my lump is an open sore. This has just scared the **** out of me.
My question is this... Is it possible that this isn't herpes? I mean... It could be... the last time I was sexually active was a few weeks ago... but wouldn't the sores appear on my penis? This whole deal has me extremely worried to the point where when I get home from work all I can think about is this damned lump. The part that really sucks is I just signed up for insurance at my new job and it won't take effect until May 1st... Which means I have to wait 3 weeks to even find out what it is! This is really bugging the hell out of me. Could I please get some help. Thank you.
