    Always ask your doctor for the proper medical term. Even though he/she may try to explain this in simple terms, it is important for you to know the actual medical term. Cannot say for sure but in all likelihood your doctor may have meant that the lymph nodes in the area are swollen. This can occur for a number of reasons including an infection. It may be a temporary occurrence and pass with time unless your doctor suspects something more serious and requires further testing before making a final diagnosis.
