Inner thigh bump

I have a big bump on my inner thigh near the vaginal area. It wasn't there a day ago. I noticed it this morning. It's been getting bigger as the day has worn on.  It's worrying me. What could it be?

If it's both itchy and sore it's likely a boil, especially getting bigger during day. Try hot compresses and see if it comes to a head. Cover it, because if it is a boil it will eventually break and wherever the pus drips could produce another. That is the most common cause of that type of rapidly growing bumps in that area. If it doesn't break or go down in a week or ten days see a doctor.
