Big lump under my skin in my bikini area

I can't believe this, I jut found a really big and hard lump under my pubic hair! It is not red, you can't see a bump from the outside and it doesn't really hurt. I don't think it moves around either. It just sits under my skin and is so big (1.5cm probably), it is really scaring me. Too big to be just an ingrown hair. It's not round, more elongated.

I'm scared this is cancer. Can anyone help, please?

Hello,
It can be a boil, cyst or a swollen lymph node. Lymph nodes are small (1-2cm) and bean-shaped nodes. They are very important to your body keeping you healthy. Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes) is usually caused by a viral, fungal or bacterial infection.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
