Question: enlarged right groin after bike accident

 dcupid - Sat Aug 01, 2009 1:25 pm

Hello everyone!
I had a bike accident for just over 12 months now. At the time of the accident, my groin was swollen and painfull. I did not visit a doctor. I wanted to allow it to heal on its own. After some weeks I no longer had any pain, and the size reduced to a level. Now the swelling will no longer ruduce past that level. I don't know if it affected my inguinal lymph nodes. I feel very well and no pains at all. I am just so worried that the reduction stopped, and am also worried about my inguinal lymph nodes.

I will appreciate your every reply.
Thanks a lot.
