    Inguinal swollen lypmh nodes

    Hi!

    I am 25 years old girl. A week before I notice a little bump in my groin. I am quite sure it is a swollen lymph node. It is 2cm x 0.6 cm in size. In some position you almost can not see if you dont touch the area. It is very mobile, and firm but not very hard. It is painless.

    The thing is that a week before notice this bump, I have some irritation in the area, because I was wearing very tight underwear for several days /weeks. Also I shaved the area few days before noticing the bump.

    In a week the bump doesn't seem to shrink significantly. Should I be worried or should I wait more? As I were quite worried I was touching the bump a lot.

    Could this be a shotty node? How long does it need to shrink? This could be consider as normal?

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!
