A few days ago i was getting out of a chair and as I stood up, I felt something kind of bulge out of my right upper groin area. I've had this happen a few times in the last 6 months, but it has always felt like it popped right back in a few seconds later, but this time it stayed out. It didn't really hurt when it happened, it just felt like an uncomfortable pressure in my groin. So the next day I went to the clinic at my University and the doctor gave me a physical and informed me that the discomfort I was feeling was a hernia and that I should consult a surgeon.
I made an appointment with a general surgeon that my primary physician referred me to. When I met with him, he also gave me a physical to ensure that it was a hernia. After checking everything out, he said that I didnt have a hernia, and that it was probably just a swollen lymph node and that it should go away in the next few days/weeks.
I'm not really sure what to do now. I've been experiencing more discomfort than i was originally and this morning I woke up with some stomach pain, I'm not sure that could be related or not. I trust the general surgeon more than i trust the university clinic. But my groin area just doesn't feel right, and i distinctly remember it feeling like something just bulged out of my groin and I wouldn't think that a swollen lymph node would just instantly swell up like that.
