Hard lump about an inch above base of penis in pubic area

So a little backstory, I just got a new girlfriend and have been sexually active without protection recently and noticed today I have a pea sized lump under my skin right above the base of my penis. It is kinda painful and uncomfortable but it isn’t red and doesn’t have a head to it like a pimple would. I removed a few hairs from the area with tweezers and noticed some blood came out but I still have the bump. What could this be?

Could just be an ingrown hair, but if you are having unprotected sex- you should have regular STD testing done as a precaution.  I don't think the bump is any STD- but always best to verify after having unprotected sex.
