Question: Groin Spot type thing

 pottyandy - Mon Sep 17, 2007 3:01 pm

Hello, I went 16 in may, 6 week ago i found a spot on my groin skin abit abouve my penis because i had an itch, it got big and red, and eventually i popped it and it went, i felt just a random moment for no reaosn and felt a little bump its on my skin,

I get very worked up and cant stop feeling it, when i feel it now its not a lump or spot i can feel my lymph nodes under the skin, so im quite sure its on my skin,

If i keep feeling it the area somtes look a very light shade of purple where it is, but then if i leave it alone i can feel a little spot like bump again.

So im sure its on the skin, i get worked up about these things thinking i have cancer!

If you was looking for cancer what would you be feeling for?
