Lump under skin in pubic Region

I have found a small pea sized lump under the skin in my pubic region about 1cm above my penis. I does not hurt, there is no discomfort and there is no skin discolor but I am quite worried about it. It feels like an ingrown hair but it feels like it is a few millimeters deeper then the surface.

Hi Dzr
Lumps under the skin could be nodules related to fat (lipomas), fibrous tissue (fibromas), small nerves and other connective tissue. As you have pointed out it could also be an'ingrown hair' or a blocked gland (sebaceous cyst). All of the above conditions I have mentioned are benign (Not cancers). They are bothersome but are not cancers.

I would recommemd that you watch it for a while. If it increases in size, or is associated with some other problem like fever, pain discharge etc, meet your physician soon and have him/her look at it. If it stays the same, at your next routine visit you could show it to your physician. If it regresses and completely disappears, nothing more needs to be done.
