I am a 29 year old female with a hard ping pong sized lump you can see through my skin located between my pubic area and thigh and it hurts to touch?

In brief: Skin lump

Usually possibilities include a cyst, an abscess, a lymph node, or a lipoma.
However there are many other rarer possibilities. It is prudent to ask your doctor to evaluate the lesion. Especially because it hurts to touch it. That suggests that it could be inflamed or infected.

A hernia is another possibility of your symptoms.

In brief: You have an abscess

You need to see your doctor and have this examined.
You have an abscess and it may need to be drained and you may need to start oral antibiotics.
