Hello from JustAnswer. It is very common for enlarged lymph nodes to develop in the groin, and a lymph node that is 0.7 cm by 1.9 cm is not worrisome. The ultrasound also can detect some of the internal structure of the lymph node. You do not describe any other comment about the lymph node, so I presume that the appearance of the structure of the lymph node was normal or that there was no comment upon the structure, which would indicate that there was no abnormal appearance of the internal structure. So, if the lymph node was 0.7 cm by 1.9 cm and the internal structure was normal in appearance, this is not worrisome. Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.
