Side of pubic area swollen

Just wondering if anyone else has had a swollen area on the side of their pubic bone. I just noticed this when waking up this a.m. It's not super swollen, but definitely more swollen than normal...and a little tender too. I left a message with my Dr.'s office, but just thought I'd check with you guys while I wait for a call back (I'll probably hear back this afternoon sometime).

I had this recently when I had shingles and  believe it was the lymph gland in the area swelling and hurting.  You could have an infection in a hair folicle or have you got a bruise or a scratch on your leg that could be leading to a localised reaction of your lymph node. Alternatively it could be pregnancy related but not sure what that would be.

Thank you so much for replying, Pum. As far as I know, I haven't had any type of infections lately...but it is in the same area where the lymph nodes would be, so who knows. I just spoke to my nurse, who will talk to my doctor once he gets out of surgery, so we'll see what he says.

Thanks again! I really appreciate it!

good luck. I'm sure everything is fine. I've never experienced this one.  I've had the labia a bit swollen, but not the public bone.

Thanks, Sherry! Like Pum, my doctor thinks it's the lymph nodes. He wasn't too concerned about it, so that made me feel a little better. He said if it's still swollen on Monday, to come in for a checkup. It's already looking a little less swollen today, though, so we'll see what happens...
