Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you?
User :   Hi, I am an 18 yr old female. I have a thumb size hard-ish lump on the inside of my leg near my bikini line. It is purple-ish colour and is painful when I push or touch it. I have tried to burst it, thinking that I could pop it but it just bled. I have had them before and when I tried to pop it, it felt like it had popped internally. It keeps coming back and i am very worried as it has grown since earlier on today.
Doctor :  
have you got it examined anytime earlier to find out what exactly it is?
User :   no, I am seeing a doctor tomorrow about something else but I really wanted to know what this is so I don't freak out
Doctor :   how does it start?
User :   I don't know. They just appear
Doctor :  
User :   have you any idea what it may be?
Doctor :  
the description that you have given about it, does each time it happens the same way?
User :   well i don't know how it happens but they are the same each time
Doctor :   are there any other such swellings?
User :   no
