Lymph Node Enlargement

Causes of femoral lymph node enlargement

These are situated in the crease between the leg and pelvis (more on the inside of that crease, i.e. medially).

It is less significant than inguinal lymph node enlargement and is usually caused by dermatophytosis (fungal skin infection) of the foot.
