Lumps in pelvic area, not painful. My dr thinks it's due to shaving, but would this still be the cause if its underneath the skin? Not ON my skin?
LumpyBumpyGrumpy: If it is due to shaving, then what happens is that those little hairs, after being shaven-down, lose their sense of direction (they don't have GPS yet) and get stuck just beneath the skin. Then they get pissed off and try harder but can't break back through or, actually grow in really screwy directions. That causes irritation and bumps. Some people are just prone to it: armpits, pubies, face (men) ...Read more

What can cause a very very painful lump inside of my nose on the left side what is this very painful lump inside the left side of my nose
Most : Most painful lumps that arise acutely (quickly) in the nose are infected hair follicles or skin infections. If it has been there for a while, it may be time to have it evaluated as you may require antibiotics. Sometimes, these lumps may develop into abscesses requiring drainage. Although extremely unlikely, tumors (benign and malignant) may arise in the nose and may cause pain. Most treatment depends on the location, duration, appearance, and severity of symptoms. If it is close to the opening of the nose (vestibule) and it has been quick to arise (and present for only a short time) - warm compresses and pain medication (advil (ibuprofen) and tylenol) may help, however, if the pain is severe, or it has continued to worsen, i would advise an exam immediately to be treated appropriately. ...Read more
