Hyperpigmentation: This is likely hyper pigmentation due to folliculitis/ingrown hairs. When you shave, be sure to use shaving cream & only shave in the direction of hair growth, so you don't cut them off so short (decreases the risk of ingrown hairs.)

Ask your doctor: A superficial lump in an area in which you shave is most likely an inflammatory reaction to the irritation from shaving, or from a blocked hair follicle. Cancer is unlikely, and lymph nodes are not superficial. Also ingrown hairs and razor bumps likely come on quickly and will go away if you leave them alone, but a cancer won't. See a dermatologist for proper diagnosis. ...Read more

I have ingrown hair in my pubic area so i let them grow out, now their is few bumps but a lot of the hair are paired together to grow, should I rip them?
Ingrown hair: If the hair has grown out, it will not pierce through the follicular wall or the curly end will not stick back into the skin to cause a folliculitis. Let the hairs grow out and don't cut them or pluck them. If you do, they will stick in the side of the skin and cause inflammation, pimples, and cysts. If some are sticking back into the skin try to pull the end free. ...Read more
