Lump near pubic bone

I am 20 years old and I have a lump on the right side of my vagina. It is near my pubic bone, near the hairline. You can't see it but you can feel it when you apply pressure and move in circular motion. It is about the size of a marble and does cause some pain, but nothing drastic. There is also some swelling around it. But I am very worried and tried researching on it. I really need some advice right now. Please, help me.

I would go see a doctor or your ob/gyn about it if you suspect anything! Do not try to research this on the internet- get a professional opinion as soon as you can. It may be nothing serious, but at least it'll put your mind at ease and you can get proper treatment for whatever may be the cause.

Good luck and let us know how things go :)

Please go get it checked out.  One of my sisters(33yr) noticed a lump at the end of feb/beginning of March.  Told my mom about it my mom said go to the dr.  My sisters Dr. had just left his practice.  It took her about 2-3wks. To get in.  make a long story short she was told that she had vulva cancer. She had surgery two weeks later. Since then she has been super sick(throwing up non stop).  She can't recieve radiation or chemo till she gets better, because both of those treatments wreak havak on your body and she needs to be strong enough to handle it. As of two days ago we were told that the cancer has now spread to her kidneys and around her arota(sorry about spelling.  The doctors do not giver her much hope(us much hope) except for a Miracle from God.    Some maybe thinking did  she ahve multiple sex partners.  Nope. She was a virgin until she was married 4 years ago.

So please for the sake of your health and life- go to the doctor.  No family should have to go through this.

I have had many lumps and bumps in the vaginal lip area. First thing is not to panic. You'll just make yourself feel worse which won't help you get better... trust me. Most times its just a blocked hair folical or pore. I put hot moist faceclothes on the area as often as possible to try to draw them out. And dry the area very well before putting on clothes. You should definetly make an appointment to see a doctor asap  but your body may very well take care of the infection before you go. Keep the apointment to be sure its cleared up. The worst lump I ever had took my clinic over 6 months to final get me back to "normal'. We had tried 3 courses of different antibiotics over the course of 5 months and the lump would grow and shrink accordingly but never quite go away. Finally I ended up having surgery. The lump itself was about 1 inch to the right of where a woman may tear during delivery of a large baby! It was occasionally quite painful. Because of its location the doctor I saw opted to remove the entire lump rather than putting in a wick to try draining. She called it an "perirectal cyst" but said that the terminology was not quite right do to its location. I ended up with about a half dollar size hole in my vaginal area that took about 2 weeks to close and I was left with a very tiny scar.  As a matter of fact I have an appointment tomorrow for another lump in the same general area. It is very deep beneath the skin. Sore to the touch. I have also have a small lump beneath an obvious hair folical that is clearing up as well that I noticed a week ago it is already beginning to shrink. The main thing is once you get a lump to get treatment started asap before the body walls it off which is why I had to have surgery. Any other lumps I have found over the years have been treated via antibiotics and have cleared up within a few weeks. The lump removed via surgery was not cancerous. Hopefully this one will clear up without surgery too.

I just noticed a lump way under the skin, you can't see it, only feel it when you put pressure there. It also feels about the size of a marble. I asked a few friends and they said another possibility is that area is also where you have lymph nodes. Sometimes they swell depending on your hormones. I explained to them though that this is like in the pubic area almost where my leg meets the pubic area but on the actual pubic area. It does give quite a bit of discomfort when I push on it. Has anyone had anything like this?

Yah, I have the same thing ive noticed it since i was 15 and it scares me. it doesnt hurt or nething only wierd feeling when i push on it mine is on the left side thou. im 19 now and nothing is diffrent its the same size and same feeling.

Most likely, the lumps are just swollen lymph nodes.  Your Inguinal lymph nodes extend all around your pelvis.  They can swell up for no reason, but do so mostly due to infection.  If it can move, doesn't hurt (unless you mess around with it for a period of time), and it's not hard, that's probably what it is... but GET CHECKED OUT.  I cannot stress that; what if you die because you were too embarrassed?  Pointless.  Don't worry. But don't wait.

I had a very similar lump to the ones some of you are describing, a small marble sized lump, not terribly hard, but firm, on the left side, on the edge of my hairline, and tender to the touch. I went to the doctor, and very quickly she knew what it was. It turned out that I had another bump about five inches above the lower one which was only noticable if I layed with my left foot resting on my right knee. She diagnosed it as Folliculitis.  I had developed an infection that was brought on by shaving my pubic area, and the infection caused the lymph nodes to swell in an act to try and fight it off. So all the lumps were were swollen lypmh nodes!  She prescribed me some meds to help fight the infection and advised me not to shave.  Apparently shaving is bad for you because it leaves open areas for bacteria to enter. She also said many women who don't shave their pubic areas are also at risk for these bumps by just shaving their legs. It's not a very serious condition, but if not treated it could eventually become a very painful abcess (abscess) that could require surgery. With my medication and not shaving my lumps dissapeared in a week or two!  So either way, get it checked out! Better to be safe than sorry! And thank you to all the women who posted their thoughts! It helped alot when I first found my lump!

i'm 16 and yesterday night, i found a lump around my hair line, its firm but tender, i slept for like 6 hours and i woke up first thing in the morning since i couldn't  ignore it anymore!!
then i found this page, which made me a bit calmer.
my heart and mind were racing like so fast and all these thoughts just came to me...."is this cancer, is it cervical cancer? i wish i had taken that vaccine, when i was getting all my other immunizations, will they remove my uterus, will i ever have kids?? the kids i long for so much? will i have to start saving up for a surrogate...."
lol   i just hope its the lymph nodes.....since its less serous...
i need to go see a doctor i know, but isn't it embarrassing??
and i dont have a gynecologist, just a regular pediatric doctor....should i get a gynecologist??
but that would take longer but i don't want to have to get the wrong information with my general doctor, which would be even worse.

Hey,

Now it maybe be something else, serious maybe. I'm no professional but it sounds to me, like you have the same thing I did! I started to flip out and thin it was cancer and what not and it was in the same place and the same size as you explained. And after I went to see my doc about it he told me it was nothing but a swollen lyphnode. Yeah, apperantly you can get one of the ones down there swollen mostly due to sex (from what you secrete) But yeah, it coyld most definatly be a swollen lymphnode.

I also have a lump on the right side between the vagina and where my leg meets. You can't see it, but I can feel it, it feels about the size of a golf ball. It doesn't hurt when I push on it, but it feels strange.  I'm starting to get worried but i'm also hoping that it's just a swollen lymphnode.  I'm going to call the gyno tomorrow and make an appt!!

My daughter had a lump and found out it was a hernia.  We got her to have it fixed as it was causing discomfort...otherwise we might have just left it alone...my daughter says that it wasn't a difficult surgery and she felt little discomfort from it.  I myself have had three lumps removed. one was a stitch left over from my pregnancy that 6 years later had formed a rather large cyst (size of a quarter) just on the bottom inside of my vagina that I had to have removed.  One was from a very swollen hair follicle (about the size of a nickle) that got infected because of shaving and I had that removed and that was on my outer vulva.  And the other time I had mono and I had a very badly and painfully swollen lymph node at which also spread to the other side two weeks later.  So you see there are many things a lump can come from and not just cancer.  The important thing is that you don't ignore them, but get them checked out as most all are simple and have simple cures.  Hope this helps the fear that some of you have.

I have a lump on the right side of my pubic area. It's about half an inch long, and a quarter inch wide. It's very red and has a slight fever. Theres no head on it like a pimple or infected hair would have. It also has a burning sensation and it VERY sensitive to the touch. I go to the dr tomorrow but am really scared. I hate pain and am afraid that she's gonna lacerate it..... I've tried the hot compresses and hot baths and it's not getting any better............... It hurts a lot. I have no idea what's causing it.... I don't shave that area, I'm a virgin, and...... yea. Any ideas?

  I have had several of cysts.  For some reason I am very prone to them.  I have had them mainly in the pubic or thigh region.  It is usually blocked folicles.  I do recommend getting checked of course.  Other reasons for these may be if U exercise or sweat in these regions and wait to shower as the pores get blocked quickly.  I also have hardly any butt, and the DR said that when I sit or have to much pressure in an area too long, it also causes this.  Totally freaked the first time I rode my motorcycle on a five hour ride to a rally and by the time I got home I had to cysts on the inside of my thighs were the pressure from sitting was.  I guess my point is, get it checked, but don't freak, 'cuz it could be no big deal and if it is you won't know until the results.  Then you will have options at that point.  So it is wasted freaking.  Hope this may calm someone.

help please, i found a lump on the right pelvic aera hair line thingy and im so scared :( it hurts when pressure is added and it moves, its not that big but the size is about a thumb and hard. iv only recently noticied it around xmas time and around this time, the lower stomach/pelvic area began to hurt and get shooting pains. How ever, im worried this is linked to the sex. I am having sex with my new partener since then and as a result;  my tummy is in pain after sex with him and this lump isnt going away (but nor getting bigger)
could it be an std? and can i have children? reading this page has made me so scared.

9 times out of 10 it's probably a cyst or ingrown hair... I get them sometimes when I shave... though not usually on my labia.  For me they usually appear around the hair line where I shave on the abdomen or inner leg, but I have had them once or twice on the labia... in fact I am just getting over one right now.  They'll usually pop on their own if you soak in a hot bath... but if they don't (which I found was the case with this last one) then go to the doctor.  

If, like me, you can't afford a doctor's visit... then slice up some garlic and secure it with a bandage over the infected area.  I know it sounds gross, but the garlic will draw out the infection and allow it to drain naturally.  I went from having a huge lump and a low grade fever a couple days ago to having a normal temperature and a much reduced lump today.  This morning when I took off the garlic poultice, I found that not only had the infection come to a head, but I was able to remove the hard puss that surrounded the ingrown hair.  

The important thing is not to panic... if your family has a history of cancer then by all means go to the doctor, (if for no other reason than to give yourself peace of mind...) but if you shave in the area that the lump is found, then it is probably just an ingrown hair that has become infected.

About 3 years ago i developed a very small hard lump in my public hair area, i assumed it was an ingrowing hair but it never went away. When i used to get waxed the lady said she thought it was a small blind boil probably caused by an ingrowing hair. Later developed another one just below it. Because of this i stopped shaving and waxing to prevent the problem. I havent had one for years the same two have remained, not causing any problems, not getting bigger or smaller, itchy or anything. Just two small hard lumps. Now recently i have developed two more more at the same time but one is directly in the top creavse of my vagina and the other is in the public area. I now have four of this little lumps!!! I have no idea of what they are or what to do? Getting to the doctors can be difficult for me and i would rather not waste the doctors time on blind boils. Could they be cysts? Has anyone else had these and does anyone have any idea what they could be?

These postings have been really helpful, since I also located a lump the other morning on the right side of my pubic triangle, which scared me to death. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the way my period's been behaving lately. I come on and then it disappears and takes several days to reappear. But maybe I've got polyps as well. God knows!
I'm amazed to see that some people are having trouble getting to see their GP/doctor about this immediately. In the UK most community doctors run 'emergency' surgeries where if you turn up early enough they'll see you that morning. Or there's always the A&E (ER) department at your local hospital where, if you're prepared to sit for an hour or so, you can see a doctor.
Regarding the poor girl who feels too embarrassed to tell her mum, you're not a 'freak'; it sounds like it's your mum that's unapproachable about certain matters. But this is about your health, and possibly your life, so talk to her, or to another adult you can trust. It's her job to look after you.

I noticed the same golf ball sized lump on the right side of my vagina on my hairline, it is painful to touch and even at random times it wills hoot pain through it. I have not planned to see a doctor yet, my mom said it is most likely an infection but it seems to be getting more painful, bigger and it moves, unlike the last infection I had from shaving my legs (on my ankle). I am going to try the garlic and band aid thing tonight and see if that works at all, I hope so, if not I will continue to a walk in clinic or something along the lines of cheap doctor when I get a chance. Thanks for all of you who have steered me away from a cancer worry and I hope everyone else finds out what their lump is. Stay positive and God Bless. -kay

Hello,
I have, a lump, maybe a little smaller than a marble right my my pubic hair line as described my other posters. A little tender to touch. I kind of assumed right off the bat that It was a swollen gland or lymph node. I'm used to getting them in my neck. It acts just the same, moves around slightly when played with, tender to touch. Feels exactly the same. But I don't usually get them there so I decided to do some research! It is a common area! There, on the neck, and the armpits it's all common. This can be cause just from shaving. Also I found a rule of thumb that I thought would be helpful to share with you worried readers.
If it happens almost randomly, aka you wake up with it, and It is tender. It is more than likely just an infection, and it's fighting it off. It it gradually deleloppes over time and doesn't hurt, It is more likely to be a tumor. In no intent to cause worry. It's just better to be informed! good luck!

I get this bumps all the time near my panty line. They are hard and marblesized with pain. If you go to WebMD and type "boils" you can read about them. I would also recommend looking for photos of boils and comparing them to your own bumps to see if any similarities. They will go away by themselves within a week or a few days more if it is a boil. To relieve the pressure pain, apply a warm compress or take a hot bath. This could help drain it. You can also put some raw bacon on it and the salt in the bacon will help dry out the boil. You can also take baking soda and mix it with water to make a paste and put it over the boil and put a bandaid over it and that can help aid in drying it out. There really is no need to go to a dr for a boil unless it gets consitantly larger and pain becomes unbearable. Then it's infected, most likely a staph infection. I had one that did get infection and it turned out to be strep. Go figure, strep by my pubic area. You can take antibiotics and you're good as new. The dr. will also drain it for you. Check out WebMD, the information on there is very trustworthy.

Ive had this problem too. It went away after a while and doctors can be so dismissive but I waited to see how long it stayed for which was about a week or two. I'd be so worried if it returned though. So definitely make a doctors appointment. Don't be too worried! That just makes it worse.

I have the exact same thing! I noticed it when I got out of the shower! A pea sized bump. Didn't have a pimple head really, but I tried to squeeze it like a pimple and it had white stuff come out that didnt smell just like a pimple and even blead a little bit like a pimple after you get all the stuff outta it.. Cept it still kinda hurts (it's been like half an hour since I squoze it) and it's firm, and sorta sticks up.. like it's noticable. I'm a virgin, but I'm just kinda freakin out 'cause my boyfriend has herpes on his eye.. ha. I didn't know if that makes a difference, though he hasn't had a break out in over a year goin strong.. I'm just hoping it's just an ingrown hair :-/. Makes me feel better to post about it. If anyone else has had this before, please responde because the doctor prolly couldn't fit me in for a couple months (that's how long it took for my past appointment). Nobody likes to find lumps anywhere on them, am I right!

Don't worry, I have had one as you describe, for five years.  Eventually it became infected so I went to a plastic surgeon and had it removed.  It is called a sebaceous cyst.  It can come back but it was the best thing I could have done, to have it removed, it was noticeable on my face.

hi everyone, i had this same problem, and decided to post my experience here after going to the doctor's. i was worried sick because i'm only 20, and when i felt a lump suddenly on one day i was needless to say, very very very freaked out & paranoid, since i'm very much a hypochondriasiac as well. anyway, mine turned out to be a swollen lymph node coupled with at UTI, & the UTI is especially so if you feel pain around the groin area (sometimes very bad pain i must add), and the 'lump' itself is tender to the touch, not painful and shouldnt be too big. my doctor prescribed me antibiotics and pills for my UTI, and said that if the swell doesnt go down 2-3 weeks after the start of medication i will have to go for further checkup...hope this helps.

Reading these I am a little freaked out at times. A few weeks ago I felt some twinges on my lower left abdomen, didn't really think anything of it. Now about a week ago I noticed a small lump right at the top of my pubic region on the left hand side. It has scared the hell out of me. I keep pressing it and now it is quite painful. It does move around, feels a bit like a fatty lump, I've also noticed another one just above it too. I've booked an appointment with my GP, the next available one is June 10th (3 half weeks away)!!! Obviously I wanted a female doctor. I'm constantly worrying. I haven't told anyone, my sister is due a baby anyday so I don't want to worry my mum or anyone. I feel sick everyday cos I'm worrying so much, I've convinced myself it's cancer. As soon as I find out what it is I will let you all know. Wish me luck :/

Hey girls, if you ever have a lesson to learn, it's talking to mom. ESPECIALLY if it's about something health related. Okay so you're scared to speak up, you're to embarrassed to say anything, to show anyone. As they say there is no time like the present. PLEASE TRUST ME I guarantee your mom will be one hundred and ten percent supportive. She will help you through this and know exactly what to do! Chances are she or someone close to her has had this same experience and she will know what doctor to see or maybe even how to make it go away. A few embarrassing, awkward moments won't kill you, in fact they might even save your life! As for the "embarrassed to see a doctor" thing... Puh-lease... GUYS THAT'S WHAT DOCTORS ARE FOR! I promise any doctor would be happy to take a look see just to make sure everything Is going and growing smoothly! Also doctors are always calm about looking at your "private areas." They want to make you as comfortable as possible! So they won't make a big deal about it! In fact if you are really just to embarrassed to tell mom  (which you most deffinantly should) then just ask mom to schedule a regular check up appointment. When you are above the age of 14, the doctor asks your mom to step out of the room for about 3-4 minutes so she can examine that specific area. Even doctors know how awkward it can be sometimes. While your mom isn't in the room calmly mention to your doctor that you felt a small lump and would like her to check it out. She will be more than happy to, and she will be so appriciative you told her. Like I said before that's what doctors are here for! To keep you healthy! If you still feel embarrassed take a deep breath and just tell yourself the appointment will be over soon, it's most likely nothing, and by tomorrow the doctor will be checking out the same lump on a different patient and she will have forgotten all about you. I promise you are never alone when it comes to      health issues! I HOPE THIS HELPS

Hey girls, if you ever have a lesson to learn, it's talking to mom. ESPECIALLY if it's about something health related. Okay so you're scared to speak up, you're to embarrassed to say anything, to show anyone. As they say there is no time like the present. PLEASE TRUST ME I guarantee your mom will be one hundred and ten percent supportive. She will help you through this and know exactly what to do!

kaki5,
I have the same issue (marble sized lump in the pelvic region that's only sore when I touch it and it's not visible). Did you figure out what it is or hopefully was? I'm worried because I don't have insurance right now.

Hey I just felt the exact same thing u did I didn't feel it yesterday and tonight I layed down and scratched there it freaked me out it's the size of a marble as well right above pubic hairline on the left side. I'm kinda tripping out but at the same time I went to the STD center for tests about 3 months ago and during their usual feeling around your pelvis and so on I remember here feeling that spot on both sides and said something about my glands being swollen and maybe thats what's wrong with both of us right now and if yours just appeared outta nowhere pretty good chance it's just swollen glands

I have this too. I've had it for awhile, and I asked my gyno and she said it's probably from shaving or wearing too tight of underwear. I'm still going to go to the doctors. When I squeeze it, it like drains. I'm kind of freaked out, but I do shave and I'm guessing it's an ingrown hair or something like that.

Thats exactly what I have.  I just discovered it in the bathroom.  I thought I pulled a muscle there from situps but it felt like a marble under the skin.  I had a feeling it was a gland.  Makes sense.  My body is going crazy with stress and I quit smoking so that'll send everything into a state of panic.  Thank you for your post.

Please don't panic as these are usually very common cysts!  BREATHE! Then read and educate yourself, and make an apt. To see either your gyn. Ob/gyn will have far better knowledge to tell you which type you have and treatments available. Know that surgery is a last resort. Here are some great links.  And don't be embarrassed! 1/3 of Gyn visits are dealing with these common cysts and though you may feel uncomfortable know that you are in good hands and all of us women feel this at first. You do get over it! And what a 5 minute exam can do to give you peace of mind back And stop the fear of having cancer....is so worth it. Here are two great resources to learn about the different types of cysts. Also you can be a virgin and still get these! Being on the pill and pelvic surgeries can also cause these. Cysts grow every where and are common and easy to treat!  So please relax and know that you ARE NORMAL!  Hope this helps bring relief as I have had two taken out surgically and wasted to much time hiding in embarrassment and they got so big I had to have surgery. Don't wait as they can get worse and encapsulate. Read these links they will give you great power in knowing all about why they occur and treatments!
