Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by the little knots in the pelvic area which burst and exude out white thing with hair on it with associated bleeding for the last 2-3 years.
These might be the swollen lymph nodes which are common in the inguinal region of pelvis but the more likely possibility is of a sebaceous cyst which have a tendency to recur. Sebaceous cyst is a closed sac or cyst below the surface of the skin that has a lining that resembles the uppermost part (infundibulum) of a hair follicle and fills with a fatty white, semi-solid material called keratin. Sebaceous cysts generally do not require medical treatment. However, if they continue to grow, they may become unsightly, painful and infected. Treatment is surgical usually. You must consult your personal physician for definitive diagnosis as the same is not possible online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
Note: This post is not to emphasise final diagnosis as the same cannot be made online and is aimed just to provide medical information and no treatment suggested above be taken without face to face consultation with health care professional.
