Excision Lymph Node, Groin Procedure

Excision of lymph nodes in the groin is a surgical procedure commonly performed to remove lymph nodes that have become swollen. Swollen glands or lymph nodes typically go away independently, but patients should visit their doctor if they notice any irregular symptoms. Swollen lymph nodes are typically the result of an infection, but there is the potential that it could be cancerous. Removing these lymph nodes helps to determine the stage of cancer, assess metastasis, and plan appropriate treatment strategies.

When is This Procedure Necessary?

Patients may consider an excision of the lymph nodes in the groin region if there is a suspicion of cancer or if an infection becomes painful. This procedure is commonly performed in cases of melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and certain gynecologic or urologic cancers. The removal of affected lymph nodes helps to both diagnose and treat the spread of cancer by preventing further dissemination to other parts of the body. In addition to aiding in staging and treatment planning, excision lymph node surgery can also provide valuable information on the extent of disease progression and guide subsequent therapeutic interventions such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

What To Expect

Patients will be under general anesthesia to ensure their comfort throughout the procedure. The surgeon will begin by making an incision in the groin region and will use specialized tools to remove the affected lymph nodes. The surgeon will send the collected material to a lab for testing and diagnostic procedures. Once the lymph nodes are successfully removed, the surgeon will close the incision and the patient will be monitored as they wake up.

Following the procedure, patients may experience discomfort, swelling, and limited mobility in the affected area. It is essential for individuals to follow their healthcare provider’s post-operative instructions, which may include taking pain medications, wearing compression garments, and performing gentle exercises to aid in healing and prevent complications such as infection or lymphedema.
