Bartholin's Gland: Either that or the cowper's gland has become blocked and turned into a cyst that has become infected. Your fp should be able to treat you with antibiotics as a good first try.

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Cyst: Assuming the bump is painful, it is likely a cyst which is a fluid filled bump below the skin. It could also be an early abcess, which is an infected collection of pus below the skin, like a pimple but more painful and larger. Either can be a consequence of shaving in the genital region. Don't squeeze or pop it! I recommend seeing your doctor asap to see if it needs to be drained. ...Read more

Bartholin glands: A Bartholin's cyst is formed when a Bartholin's gland is blocked, causing a fluid-filled cyst to develop. A Bartholin's cyst is not an infection, although it can be caused by an infection, inflammation, or physical blockage (mucus or other impediment) to the Bartholin's ducts (tubes which lead from the glands to the vulva).
