Question:

There is a young man who is a neighbor about 18 years old. He has lumps on the lymph nodes in his groin area. Would this be cancer or are there other reasons for it? Thank you.

Answer:

This could be due to several things - some serious, others not.  I suggest he been seen by a physician who can examine him and make an appropriate recommendation.
