I am a female 18 years old and about a week and a half ago I noticed a lump in my upper inner thigh...It is half the size of a penny but it sticks out about 1 centimeter...It looks like some sort of blister or wart or maybe an ingrown hair...I also have had blackheads and some zits around my upper inner thighs but they have gone away .. But I have no idea what this lump could be... I am not sexually active at all,and I dont have any itching or pain.....I am kind of hesitant to tell anyone about it..... Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not a Dr., it could be a little cyst, ingrown hair or a lot of things. If it bothers you a lot and appears to be gettng worse go to the dr and have him/her check it out just to relieve your mind as you don't know what it is.
Hi, it sounds like a boil...Carbunkle...Whatever you want to call it. It will take some time to go away, it will burst on its own, you should not squeeze it or you will be sending the bacteria back through the blood and you will get more. A warm/hot compress can help draw the infection out. If it gets much worse or stays for a very long time, go to the doctor to get it lanced.
