I had a swollen lymph node in my groin and for which I took antibiotics for two weeks. But, there was no improvement. So two days back, I had a biopsy of the whole lymph node. I will get the results in five days from now. I am worried because, now I have another swollen lymph node in the groin, just below the one given for biopsy. When I called my doctor, he said that it is not a typical reaction to the operation. I have an appointment with him in two days. Can you please tell me why my lymph node is swollen again?

Thank you doctor,
I do not have any symptoms that you mentioned, but I did have hemorrhoids a few months back. And the second lymph node got swollen only after the biopsy. It was not there before, or else I would have noticed it before itself. Does the new swollen lymph node since the biopsy, mean the issue is more likely to be an infection and not a malignant lymphoma?
Here is a short history of my problem, I noticed the first swollen lymph node almost a month back. Then I had blood tests, urine tests, and ultrasound done and all the reports were fine. During and following this, I had Levofloxacin for two weeks, which was not effective. I then had the biopsy done. Since the biopsy, another swollen lymph node appeared below the earlier one. I am under Amoxicillin and Etoricoxib since the biopsy.
