Possibly: The most common causes are an enlarged lymph node or a hernia. Have a doctor take a look.

Depends: Your hair may be ingrown because it is curly and that may cause the problem. Other causes of bumps in the groin area may have to do with the lymph nodes and infections. See your doctor if it is larger than an ingrown hair.
A 21-year-old female asked:
Is it normal to have a thin white line along the groin area?

Yes: It is common to have a white line where the abdominal wall joins the thigh. Strong ligaments cause indentation that can appear as a line. Yeast infection in that area appears more reddish and moist.
