I have a boil type lump on my pelvic area about 2in. From the crease of my thigh. It pops with a lot of blood and very little pus, it also hurts.

See doc: A boil (carbuncle, abscess, furuncle) sometimes pops on its own successfully but sometimes not, as in your case. Don't keep squeezing it! Use hot compresses (hot towels, heating pad) for 30 minutes every couple of hours and see a doc today to see if it needs to be drained in the office and whether or not antibiotics might help for a time (depends on cause). Take some tylenol (acetaminophen) now & take it easy. ...Read more

Is it serious to have a pea sized lump on the outer part of the vaginal lip? It itches and after a few days I squeezed it and brown pus came out.

No: This is a very common occurrence, which is simply an inclusion or sebaceous cyst and what came out was not pus but sebum, like a whitehead on your face. See these all the time in my clinic. Can drain or excise them if desired for cosmetic or comfort reasons but no risk in leaving them alone. ...Read more
