Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
About 6 weeks ago I felt a small lump in my RH groin during the night. There was no protusion in the skin and there was no pain when I pressed it. In the morning It had disappeared. This scene has repeated itself about 5 times since then including last night with again no sign of it anywhere this morning morning. Is this something I should get checked out? Ron **Date of birth ** JA: Have you used any medication for the lump? Customer: No I haven't JA: Got it. Have you seen a doctor about the lump? Customer: No JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know? Customer: I don't think there is anything relevant. I have a pacemaker. Had a heart valve repaired afew years ago. Am on Apixaban.

It is best to get this checked out if the lump persists.
However, if you see it disappear by morning you need not go for a checkup as the GP will not be able to make out anything.
Also do not palpate yourself frequently to see if the lump has developed.
This could be something like a small infection which will clear up by itself.
But if you find a persistent lump then you need to see your GP.
