possibly cyst on perineum...reason to be concerned?

Hey, I believe I may have a possible cyst (or somewhat bad ingrown hair) on my perineum (aka 'taint'). I shave the area somewhat regularly, and the problem could stem from that. I've run into this before, but am unsure if it's in the same spot exactly, or just general area. Basically, it feels like an ingrown hair, there is no pain, but the inflamed area is quite a bit larger then I'd imagine a regular ingrown hair would be. There is also no real 'head' on it (just a semi-large, generally painless bump. Doesn't have a large circumference but sticks out a fair ammount), leading me to believe it could possibly be a cyst. It seems that when this shows up, it kind of flares up for about a week, varies in size, and then goes away.

I'm 99% sure this isn't std related, but rather a problem with a hair follicle or the sort. My primary question would be if this is of any major concern health wise? Secondly, I'd like to know if this is somewhat common. I've never really been ''busted'' on this, but don't know how a sexual partner would really react if I told them it was a harmless cyst.

any help here would be greatly appreciated.
