I am a 16 year old male, and i recently went swimming with some friends at our local pool. we were swimming laps and messing around in the water.
that night when i got home and changed out of my swimmingsuit, i found a lump in the pelvic/upper pubic region on my body. it looks kinda like an infected ingrown pubic hair due to shaving my pubic hair 2 weeks prior to swimming.
it doesnt hurt when i lift objects or sit down, so i dont think it is a hernia. a couple months before the lump, i had 2 ingrown pubic hairs in that same general area. the lump seems to be getting smaller and it barely is tender to the touch. the lump has a light red shading on it and there is a very small but of dead skin on it. last night it was a little painful, but today it seems to be getting smaller and hurting less.
i dont know if this would have to do with anything, but i used to masturbate. i dont masturbate anymorre. i am not sexually active at all, so it shouldnt be an STD/STI. and i feel a little bloated, but maybe that is from overeating a little bit during lunch
please help me figure out what the lump is. i dont wanna have to go through surgery, so any home remedies would be sooo helpful
