Hi, For the past two or three weeks I have had a small, painful bump under the skin on my upper thigh. It's near my bikini line. I don't think it's an ingrown hair, because it feels different.
At some point, you may develop a bump or a lump in the genital area. These bumps can be nothing, or their appearance could signal a more serious condition. If you are concerned, talk to your doctor.
Certain mysterious bikini-line bumps can throw you for an especially large loop. Is that an ingrown hairzit, or could it be something more serious? Your hair grows out of little pockets in your skin called follicles.
There are several causes of lumps in the groin. This leaflet gives a brief description of some of these causes and signposts to where more information on the individual conditions may be obtained. Your groin is the part just above the top of your legs, between the lowest part of your tummy and the top of your thigh.
A lump can form under your skin for many reasons. Often, lumps are benign harmless. Specific traits of the lump can sometimes tell you more about possible causes and whether you should have the lump checked out by your healthcare provider.
Most lumps and swellings under the skin are harmless and can be left alone. However, see your doctor if you develop a new lump or swelling so that the cause can be identified. A painful lump or swelling that appears suddenly over a day or two may be caused by an injury or infection.
Also feels like it moves under the skin when touched. I do shave, so I am thinking it is an ingrown hai. A few days ago while I was in the shower I noticed this bump on my bikini line. I decided to try to pop it and eventually it did, but now I look at it and there is a uncomfortable hard lump underneath my skin where the bump originally was.
