Small lump / knot
« on: January 25, 2010, 01:32:37 AM »
Hi all,

Wonder if you might have any suggestions. My bf found a small lump / knot on the outside of his thigh. It is not in the groin but on the outside of the thigh below the hip bone making us think it is not a lymph node. It is the size of a pea and movable (slides about one inch up or down).

He is on combivir and reyataz, all successful according to latest tests.

We will try to see a doctor but we are just concerned. Has anyone had anything similar?

thanks a lot,
livingpos and partner

There are lymph nodes that run up near hips and not just in the groin area.  Below is a link to a body drawing of where all the lymph nodes are in the body.  I was surprised we have them near our elbows.
