See your PCP: You've described it so well, and now it's time to see your primary care physician, or gynecologist to identify what it is, and discuss your options. S/he may need to ultrasound it if it's large. If it's smaller, they will have a differential diagnoses of what it is to determine if it's cystic or lymphatic by location. I would refrain from wearing tight clothes/jean, until you determine what it is. ...Read more

Rash: Wearing tight clothes can cause pressure on some small blood vessels in the body. If these jeans are tight, they can cause dark spots to appear in the groin.
