Abscess?: An abscess can cause local swelling, hardness, and pain. It is sometimes accompanied by skin redness and/or fever, but not always. Please see a doctor in person for evaluation; if you have an abscess it may need to be drained (a simple office procedure), and/or require antibiotics. Good luck! ...Read more

Possibly, yes: If you inadvertently nicked the skin when shaving and bacteria entered into the hair follicle, an infection could have occurred causing the "lump" Have a MD check the area if it persists. ...Read more

Possible cyst: What you are describing could be a cyst, hemangioma, or less likely skin cancer. Hard to say without a photo. It is not an STI, but you should still see your doctor to get a positive ID on what it is. Ingrown hairs are common in that area, but usually are not purple. Moles/nevi can appear anywhere, and you may have developed one there, but it shouldn't itch. Best to have it checked out! ...Read more

After a bicycle accident, my mons pubis has been very painful and I've noticed a big lump, invisible from the outside but painful to the touch. Help!

Hematoma: Trauma to any part of the body can often cause a bruise or hematoma, which can be painful to the touch. If the bruising is deep then it might not be visible to the naked eye. Alternatively sometimes the fat cells can burst and die, causing pain. That's called fat necrosis and it just takes time for to go away. Take ibuprofen. ...Read more

Could exercising with a waist trainer cause a swollen mons pubis? And if so how can it be reduced or treated?

Could exercising with a waist trainer cause a swollen mons pubis? And if so how can it be reduced or treated?

The big squeeze...: If swelling began after using the trainer, and wasn't there before using the trainer, then there is a high probability that the restricting effect of the trainer is the culprit. Depending on what tissue was strained, it could take days to weeks for resolution, providing no further irritation occurs. ...Read more

I have a hard, smooth, painless, non movable lump next to my mons pubis on the right side. Feels like a boney overgrowth. Scared its serious!

I have a lump on my mons pubis when I pressure the area it is hard rather than squishy it is white and oval shaped has a very tiny brown scab on top?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to give an opinion without examining you. Could it be that the lump developed after hard sex? Trauma may have caused the lump and abrasion of the skin may have resulted in the scab. Take it easy and see if both subside, if not, then it would be prudent to see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a marble sized lump in my left mons pubis, it hurts when I touch it only, with no white head. I'm 18 and not sexually active.?

Hard to be sure: This may just represent an inflammation at the base of a hair follicle, or a nearby lymph node. Moist heat in the form of a warm compress may improve blood flow enough that your body self heals, but if it continues to be a problem I would have it checked. ...Read more

I have a single bump on top of my mons pubis. Not painful. Could one ever get herpes on this area or could it most likely be boil/ingrowni shave alot.

I have a single bump on top of my mons pubis. Not painful. Could one ever get herpes on this area or could it most likely be boil/ingrowni shave alot.

It depends on how it: The bump could be a number of different possibilities. If it is painless, then it is not likely to be a boil or infection. I do not think it is herpes as that usually will cause a blister, red spots, itching or pain in the lesion.
Anything deeper requires close watch to see if it is increasing in size over 2-3 weeks. If it is over 1-2 centimeter or growing you need to have it examined by doctor. ...Read more
