I feel kind of weird posting this on a message board but need some help. I have had a swollen lymph node in my groin for 6 months now. I went to an MD at 2 months. He put me on antibiotics and ran a CBC blood panel. Everything came back normal. I had a horrible time in trying to communicate with him so I decided to find a new doctor. The new doctor spent about 3 minutes with me. She checked my other lymph nodes and found no sign of swelling anywhere else. She told me that the swollen one was within the range of normal and other then being swollen, felt normal. She told me to come back in 3 months. Well it is still swollen and I know that it's swollen for a reason but no one can tell me why.
I'm trying to decide if I should find a new doctor to help me get to the bottom of this or if I should find an alternative practitioner or if I should just accept that it's "normal" even though I know it has to be swollen for a reason.
If I go to a doctor any ideas on what more they could look for? No one has done a urine check or an ultrasound to look at it or that region of he body. If I find an alternative health practitioner any ideas on what kind might be most helpful for this type of problem? Has anyone ever had this themselves?
Again, I feel weird posting this but I'm not getting any answers from the doctors and am having a hard time figuring out what to do.
