Location: If this corresponds to the fold of the groin it is likely a lymph note. These are small structures that sift through body serum & clean out debris before the serum is returned to the circulation. There are many located throughout the body & those in the fold of the groin will often be noticed as pea to peanut sized, rubbery bumps that seem attached.They are a normal finding. ...Read more

Needs evaluation: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment.

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?

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

Hello I have a lump in my pelvic area possibly about the size of a golf ball at time is painful! is this something to be alarmed about?

Hello I have a lump in my pelvic area possibly about the size of a golf ball at time is painful! is this something to be alarmed about?

Yes: Anything the size of a golf ball, that wasn't there in the past, and isn't suppose to grow there, should be worried about. The "pelvic area" doesn't describe exactly where the golf ball is, so a primary care doctor can look to see where it really is. Possibilities include: hernia, enlarged lymph node, cyst, etc... ...Read more

A lump in pelvic area and difficult urinating?

A lump in pelvic area and difficult urinating?

Go see ur Family Doc: Unfortunately, pelvic area is pretty vague as far as lumps go so it's best that you see your Family Doc for evaluation. Perhaps you have a urinary tract infection (either bladder or kidney) or a sexually transmitted disease (where lump represents swollen gland). Usually these infections lead to painful perhaps even frequent urgent urination. Bottom line, go see your Family Doc, GYN or Planned Pare ...Read more

Either way, if it persists, you need to see a dr. For a clinical exam and evalutation of the area. Good luck. ...Read more
