Swollen groin Lymph nodes are very rarely cancerous. The swelling is usually caused by infection. The lymph system fights infections throughout the body and show signs of infection by swelling and getting hot. See a doctor for treatments.

A swollen lymph node in your groin is not necessarily cancer. It can also be caused by an infection. Likely infections include sexually transmitted diseases, infected injuries on the leg that have spread, and some viruses that cause all lymph nodes to swell.

Any swelling in any area of the body should be seen by a doctor. Cancer can cause lymph nodes to swell but that doesn't always mean that there is cancer present. We just went through this with tonsil cancer.
