Lump on Inner Thigh

Hi,

I'm a 24 year old female and I've had a small (quarter-sized) lump on my inner thigh...about 2 inches from my underwear line. I don't think that it is an ingrown hair/pimple/or boil because it feels as though it is deeper inside the skin and there is no head (like there are on pimples). I tried taking ibuprofen and using a heating pad and it seemed to go away or at least shrink until about 3 days ago when I was showering and noticed that it feels even bigger than before and is very painful. I am getting really nervous and I am calling my doctor in the morning but I was just wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this before? Please let me know! Thanks!

Re: Lump on Inner Thigh

I have not had any personal experience with this before, but it sounds like it might be a cyst of some kind. More than likely, it is a benign one that shouldn't cause any problems for you, but it would be better to go to the doctor and get it checked out. If it is a cyst that is causing pain, the doctor may opt to remove it and possibly do a biopsy of some sort to make certain that the cyst is not pre-cancerous, etc. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Try to keep your hands off of it and apply warm compresses or take OTC medications to help with the pain until you can get a doctor's appointment. Just have it checked out and go from there. Best of luck!
