hello, im 18 years old and i found some kind of bumps in the linings between my thighs and vagina. i found the one on the right side last night and the one on the left this morning. it hurts when it something hits it but otherwise its fine. it can be felt easily by just rubbing my fingers over it. my fiance says its just probably a hair bump. Is that what it is? thank you.
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
Since you have small lumps it can either be swollen lymphnodes or neurofibromas. Swollen lymph nodes in the groin could be due to STDs (e.g., gonococcal infection, herpes simplex virus, syphilis, chancroid, granuloma inguinale, lymphogranuloma venereum etc), infection in foot, dermatitis in pelvic area, boils in pelvic area etc. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care! your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
