Inguinal node

My gf told me this morning that an inguinal node appeared and it hurts. We didn't have sex yet, we both are virgins. We just played a little bit: dry humping, i've fingered her and 2-3 times i rubbed my penis around her butt hole but i didn't touch her vagina.

Could you give me some details about her node? Could it be caused by what we did? Thank you very much!

Hi Vale123

Thank you for posting.

The lymph nodes in the groin (femoral or inguinal lymph nodes) may swell from an injury or infection in the foot, leg, groin, or genitals. In rare cases, testicular cancer, lymphoma, or melanoma may cause a lump in this area.

She should see her doctor about this if she is concerned.

Thank you, Helena. So, it isn't caused by what we did together?

It was likely already swollen but she didn't know it, is my guess. To pop up over night like that from what you did seems unlikely to me. She should check with her doctor if it doesn't go away.
