Correct Answer

It depends on the location of the carcinoma relative to the pectinate line

* if the primary tumor was above the pectinate line : lymph will go to the internal iliac nodes
* if the primary tumor was below the pectinate line : lymph will go to the medial side of the horizontal chain of the superficial inguinal nodes
