Groin lump: This may be a blocked hair follicle, sweat gals mad or oil gland. Warm compression tends to help. If it gets larger or persist, it may necessary to see a doctor for drainage and antibiotics. The doctor will also decide if this is something else that needs further evaluation.

No: But it may need to be removed if it is an infected boil. Recommend you consult with your family doctor about this. Best wishes and don't wait because you do not want an infection to enlarge.
