This answer was rated:

I have a large lump in my groin
JA: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?
Customer: This one I have had for over two weeks, it is hardish
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I have had reoccurring lumps for at least 6 months

What are your age and gender?

Do the recurring lumps go away without treatment?

Does the lump increases in size on coughing, sneezing, or straining?

Please post a picture of the lump?

I am female, 49
No the lumps don't go away with medication, the past lumps took 2 lots of antibiotics they went then this one appeared in a different place in the groin

The groin lump can be a lymph node. An ultrasound can confirm the diagnosis. An antibiotic would help in the resolution of the lymph node also.

How can I get an ultrasound as I have been trying for the past two weeks to speak to my doctor?

You may go to A&E or call NHS 111 or to the urgent care clinic;
