Swollen lymph node in pelvis?

Has anyone ever had one of these before? it's about the size of a pea, under the skin and muscle. It's sore, but apparently, not the rarest thing in the world.

  • Yea, means you are fighting off an infection somewhere in teh lower half of your body

  • Kind of like in the upper part of my leg area near the groin? Yes! It does usually mean an infection somewhere in the body, but I used to get them there and behind my ear. Never knew what my infection was, but they always seemed to be swollen. LOL!

  • Yep. Has nothing to do with where the infection is though. Those are the first ones to swell up when I have an ear infection.
