In brief: Infection

A painful bump around the genitals could be a sign of a sexually transmitted infection.
You should consider visiting your doctor to determine what the cause might be.

In brief: Cyst?

The location you describe is common for cyst formation.
However there are potentially serious infections which can occur in the area. Strongly consider seeing an ob/gyn or dermatologist for this.
