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. ...Read more

Are large palpable lumps in the pubic area common to find?

No.: Occasional small lumps that come and go are common. Not large lumps. And certainly not lumps that are progressively enlarging. See your doc to figure out how big they really are and whether they need monitoring. ...Read more

Skin infection.: Are you shaving this area? This is becoming fashionable and causing more skin infections, which could be dangerous and hard to treat. If it is very small and not too pain Gil, you may try Bacitracin or Neosprin OTC. If it continues to enlarge and get more painful see a doctor for antibiotic treatment.One problem we see now is something called MERSA, which needs a health professionals management. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Hmmm.: Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person.
Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, but,
Small infections like acne or boils are quite common there. Spreading redness implies an infection needing antibiotic but a lot of them heal on their own, . ...Read more

Sebaceous cyst?: This is probably a sebaceous cyst that is repeatedly getting infected. Or perhaps an ingrown hair with folliculitis leading to a recurrent abscess (carbuncle, boil). A minor surgical procedure to drain it probably will solve the problem. Stop popping it and see a doctor. ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more

I have a lump in my pubic area close to my thigh it is rather large in size about the size of a walnut and very painfu. There is no "head"?

Possible Infection: It sounds like you may have an infection. This is not an uncommon location for infections of either certain glands of the body or even a hair follicle. Either way it needs to be treated. Tenderness and swelling especially if getting larger is likely to turn into an abscess and should be treated by a physician. Go see your doctor before it gets worse. ...Read more

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?

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 ...Read more

Why can I feel a lump in like the v line near the pubic region been there for a while and on and of aches in that area too?

Why can I feel a lump in like the v line near the pubic region been there for a while and on and of aches in that area too?

Swelling: Sounds like a lymph node. When we have any type of infection our body filters the bad stuff out through the lymph nodes which are located throughout our body. That area drains the lower extremity as well as the reproductive organs. Make sure to see your doctor to have this checked out, simple tests can rule things out. Hope this helps and swelling goes down. ...Read more

I noticed this small ball like lump under my skin on my upper pubic area. Doesn't hurt unless touched and it moves around a little?

Possible Abscesses: It sounds like you may have some abscesses with or without cellulitis. You may need antibiotics and possible drainage of the abscesses if they are fully formed. In the meantime analgesia like paracetamol and ibuprofen will help but also running the area under hot water and soap as often as it is convenient should help. You should let a doctor take a look at it. ...Read more
