Skin abcess: This is an increasingly common problem I see in my office and often is a consequence of pubic shaving. It depends on where the bumps are but they are usually caused when a bacteria called Staph enters cracks in the skin and digs in.
1. stop shaving (if you do) for now
2. do not squeeze! This can spread bacteria to other areas
3. see your doctor who can treat by draining or with appropriate meds ...Read more

Others causes of bumps are possible, but less likely. If the bumps are mysterious-looking, a dermatologist can examine them. ...Read more

I have a pink raised bump in my crotch area. It is not painful and it is not itchy. What could it be?

Molluscum?: Just a guess, but "pink" and "raised" make me think of molluscum contagiosum, a minor viral infection that at your age usually is sexually acquired. Usually there would be several bumps in the pubic area. Google it for photos to see if they match what you see. Then visit a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

I have weird bumps on my groin that don't go away, they been there for years, they don't itch?

Likely benign: Bumps on the scrotum you can appear under the skin & are benign. On the groin, my first thought is bumps caused by ingrown hair. You may also have skin tags (though these are more common for men over 50 years old in my experience). The cause is most likely benign. But if still concerned, visit a local STD clinic, since they can help & visits are often free. Hope that helps. ...Read more
