What does it mean to have painful knots (lumps) in the pubic area on side of vagina...I heard it comes in the place of sickness?

Lymph nodes?

Tender_lymph_nodes
It sounds like you are describing swollen lymph nodes in your groin area. You are correct that your lymph nodes swell in response to an infection in the area. For example, if you had genital herpes, your groin lymph nodes would swell. If you had strep throat, your neck lymph nodes would swell. If this is a new symptom, you might want to get it checked by a doctor to rule out an infection.

You may be having a reaction to something in the clothing that may then become infected. It needs to be seen by your doctor.

I have a swollen lump about the size of a golf ball on the right side of pubic area and i am a man thought it may be an ingrown hair that festerd but now its big painful and very hard.

Hello.

Hello. Can't diagnose the cause of this mass. It could be a massively inflammed lymph node, possibly hydradenitis suprativa, an abcess, an infected cyst. If it is red, warm, has discharge, has swelling in the surrounding area has red streaks - or you have a fever - I would be seen at the ER immediately. Due to it's size, regardless, it would be prudent to have it evaluated forthwith.

Painful lump under my skin in my leg. No mark r bruse.its on my tigh and near my pubic area on my right leg what could this be ?

Could be

Skin
A lot of things. Hard to say without being able to touch, feel and see it. It could be a swollen lymph node associated with what looks like an infection you are being treated for, it could be a fatty tumor, a clogged follicle under the skin. If it doesn't go away a week or so after you finish the ciprofloxacin, go back and get it checked out, sooner if it hurts.

Penny sized lump on the lower middle part of my abdomen just above the pubic area. It's come up before and it's painful when I move/when I touch it.

Probably nothing

Tactile
Probably a lipoma - benign fatty tumor - however get it checked out to be sure.

Pea sized fleshy sort of lump on pubic area. It is underneath the skin and not painful at all, I do shave and wondering if i need to get this checked?

Probable cyst

Pain
There are a number of conditions that cause lumps and bumps to appear on the surface of the skin or just below the skin. The most common are skin cysts and Epidermoid cysts (aka sebaceous cysts) which is consistent with what you are describing. As long as "lump" is not painful and not changing in size and appearance, would just observe and have your doctor check it at your next routine visit.

Dr. Pam Yoder answered:

my friend went in a steam room to detox and by earily the next morning started complaining of a painful lump in her pubic hair area, could this be from the steam room detox because she was fine before the detox?

Great Q. Tough A.

OK, so this might sound gross, but places like shower and steam rooms are hot, humid, laden with germs from bare bottoms or damp towels. They are the perfect environment for organisms to grow and thrive. So I would ask about the steam room as well as the health of the person undergoing detox. An exam by a primary care physician or institutional MD would be helpful. Extra pain is not a good thing .

Growths in pubic area. I keep getting painful bumps in my pubic area that look like boils but not as big? In about the last 6 or so months I have been feeling random pain in my pubic area. Only to look and see a little bump that looks almost like a little

Hi.

Hi. I cannot diagnose your bumps. You described them as being rather small. Pimples and pustules in the pubic area can sometimes be folliculitis. The hair follicles can become infected. The infected follicles can be tender and swollen. Friction of your clothes may be contributing to this. If you shave your pubic area that can also be a cause. Think about using warm moist compresses on the area. Possibly, wear some clothes that are not tight and binding in that area. If they don't resolve, ask your parents to take you to see your doctor or a dermatologist.

How can I prevent large, painful bumps in genital area. I don't shave just use scissors to trim pubic hair. Every month I get at least two bumps.

Folliculitis.

Pain
This is an example of folliculitis. There are a couple of ways to treat this--topicals such as topical antibiotics or topical corticosteroids. However, a more definitive treatment for this pesky condition would be to have laser hair removal. Even a couple of treatments would reduce the hair diameter enough to likely prevent these large painful foci of inflammation at the site of the hair follicle.

Dr. ROBERT Uyeda answered:

I occasionally get what appears to be boils on my inner thighs, lower stomach or pubic area. They sometimes become large and painful. What are they?

Sounds like

Boil
folliculitis, or infection of hair follicles. These usually get better, but sometimes you need antibiotics. If it is severe and recurrent, it could be hidradenitis, a condition that might require surgery. Also get tested for systemic disorder such as diabetes. Time to see a doctor.
