    So when I get rundown or unwell and sometimes just out of the blue I get swellings which are slightly tender to the touch which run from my hips along the bottom of my abdomen and then down into the crease between my legs and crouch.

    I've done some research and I think it's just swelling in the External Iliac lymph nodes, presumably filling with lymphocytes battling some pathogen or other in my system.

    My question is how comes this seems to happen even if I feel completely well, and am I right in suspecting the External Iliac lymph nodes or is the site of these swellings not where the E.I.L.N. would actiually be expected to be ?

    Yur right, your description of symtoms sounds like swollen lymph nodes of the External Iliac lymph region. And palpable swelling of lymph nodes are typically a sign of infection. You can have swelling and not have any "tyically" symptoms of illness, such as feeling fatigue, feverish, etc. Your body constantly fights infection and disposes of waste via lymphatic system, and we are often unaware. It could just be that. But you should get yourself checked by your doctor, because recurrent swelling of the lymph nodes can be a sign of something more serious. Do you notice swelling of other lymph nodes, such as under the arm (axillary region) or just above the neck/jaw line?

    Thank you for your advice :smile:

    No I normally don't get any swelling in any of the other main lymph node sites, unless I have flu or something more serious, but even then not always.

    It's normally just the external iliac region.

    your welcome hunnybun. Still recurrent localized swelling of the lymph nodes should be evaluated. it is likely nothing, sluggish drainage leading to swelling, but again better to be safe and get looked over...preferably by a cute doctor :)

    Leave your nodes alone and go see a doctor; you can cause them to swell without even meaning to.

    This can be anything from a benign infection to cancer to lyme disease to anything. Get to a doctor.

    Well I'm presuming it wouldn't be a syptom of Conjunctivitis so it couldn't really be "anything" now could it ? :tongue: But thanks for the "you could have cancer" freak out. :eek:
