In brief: ? new ?? not new

Many times a person finds "new things" on her body when something else is going on that focuses new attention there such as starting a workout program.This lump may have been there a long time.
It is most likely related to a previous or current skin infection in the vulvar/pelvic area. Make sure you don't have current signs of infection,apply moist heat, see doc if lump persists after 7-10 days.
