Answer
I doubt that this lymph node in your groin has anything to do with your other symptoms. And without an examination I can not say much about these other symptoms. We have to wait for the verdict by your gynecologist. I the lymph node worries you much you can - if available where you are - ask your gynecologist for a touch guided fine/thin needle aspiration cytology biopsy of the node. That way we can exclude anything dangerous there. If not available a surgical biopsy is also possible but maybe not necessary. Good luck!
