I have a dime size lump on my inner thigh area. It isn't emitting anything and shouldn't be an ingrown hair. Maybe a cyst of some sort? Help!

Cyst or a lipoma

Ingrown_hair
I can't possibly tell you for sure without seeing or examining your bump, but the most common causes would be a cyst or a lipoma (a benign growth of fat cells). However, it is also possible to have skin cancer below the surface of your skin. You should see you dermatologist for an evaluation and possibly a biopsy.

I have a bump/cyst on the side of my head. Now, I lost a patch of hair in that area. What could it be? The bump does not hurt. It has dropped in size.

Sebaceous Cyst

Head
Bump just under the skin may be sebacious cyst and can sometimes be associated with hair loss. Sebaceous cyst is typically firm, round and not painful. Definitive treatment of cyst is surgical removal. If related only to the cyst, hair should regrow after cyst is removed.

Teratoma

Cyst

Could a skin cyst be from ingrown hair around my penis?

Maybe

More likely this is a sebaceous cyst. These are not infected but can be removed if unsightly. Get checked out to be sure.
