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.

Small lymph node: That is a typical area where a lymph node drained some infection or inflammation years ago and remained slightly enlarged after the malady resolved.

Mass: Masses can benign (not cancerous) things like lipomas, fibromas, cysts, swollen lymph nodes, etc. It's a good sign that this mass isn't painful and is mobile. Rarely, masses can be something worrisome (cancerous). I'd recommend you get it checked out by your obgyn or PCP because differentiating what it can be is easier by seeing exactly where it is. ...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?

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

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

A week ago I noticed a peasized lump on my pubic area. It's under the skin, not painful. I've had something similar but it went away. What could it be?

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
