Pelvis: If there has been no trauma, discomfort in the lower abdomen in the midline may be due to some pelvic congestion or mild inflammation. I recommend that you have a gynecologist perform a pelvic examination if the discomfort persists or if there is any menstrual abnormality but the congestion may resolve after a normal menstrual period. ...Read more

Skin abscess: This sounds like exactly what you say, a pimple. More precisely, a small skin abscess, perhaps starting in a hair follicle (i.e. folliculitis). Due to common skin bacteria, no different than on your shoulder, back, or anywhere else -- not special just because it's in the pubic area. Leave it alone, no more squeezing. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up soon, or if any spreading redness or fever. ...Read more

Here are some...: When did you first see such changes and how have these evolve over time? Clinically, the sequence of events suggests there was a surgically related bleeding likely along the anatomical planes of subcutaneous fat leading to slowly extending infiltration as seen.

Can you get pimples on your penis? And what does it mean when you are sore and feel bruised where your pubic hair is? Will it go away soon?

Can you get pimples on your penis? And what does it mean when you are sore and feel bruised where your pubic hair is? Will it go away soon?

See answer: Many types of "bumps" occur on the penis. If what you are noticing are multiple, small, slightly raised, similar in appearance, white to flesh-colored "bumps" on the penis, these are just prominent hair follicles or sebaceous glands and are normal, especially near base of the penis. If your soreness feels like it is deeper within, likely represents an irritation of your prostate: usually resolves. ...Read more

Lump with black dot at center I've had for months right at top of my pubic area is suddenly tender to the touch and very red in the surrounding area.?

Cyst: This may be a sebaceous cyst (wen) which is now infected and may require antibiotics and/or drainage. I recommend that you see your physician or a surgeon in view of redness and tenderness. In the meantime apply hot (not too hot) water applications, pat dry and apply an antibacterial ointment like neosporin or bacitracin. ...Read more

Precisely on rectus abdom attaches to Pubic crest, area is swollen and tender area. Did it with deep ext stretch. Have I given myself an Ingui Hernia?

Precisely on rectus abdom attaches to Pubic crest, area is swollen and tender area. Did it with deep ext stretch. Have I given myself an Ingui Hernia?

Probably not: Sounds as if you may have injured the insertion of the rectus muscle, which is pubic symphysis, similar to a muscle strain. It would be unusual for you to have subsequently created a hernia. If indeed you did, it would be a direct hernia, which is the floor of the inguinal canal. Put a heating pad on it, rest it, wait a couple of weeks and if it is still bothering you, see your MD ...Read more

Intense pain & tightening when lifting leg or walking. Inner/outer thigh, pubic area, lower back tender & painful to touch.?

Leg/back pain: With localizing pain I would consider blood clots (DVT), phlebitis (superficial vein inflammation), but the presence of back pain may indicate a radiating nerve problem (? disc) or kidney/pelvic infection. A thorough exam with labs would help isolate the cause. Could be serious condition. ...Read more

I have what I think is an abcess\boil in my pubic area it is very tender and so are my inguinal lymph nodes on the same side. I also feel nauseous?

I have what I think is an abcess\boil in my pubic area it is very tender and so are my inguinal lymph nodes on the same side. I also feel nauseous?

I think you're right: Gd description of abscess/boil, perhaps from an ingrown pubic hair; lymph nodes (same side) will localize and help heal the infection, so they enlarge and get tender. The nausea is a systemic sx, the worry is that infection enter the bloodstream. Rx is hot compresses and antibiotic. May come to head & drain on own; if not incision & drainage by a doc. Do not I&D on own: could get septic, bad news. ...Read more
