There can be a couple of different possibilities here.If the lump is inside your vagina then it could probably be a cyst. But if this lump is on the thigh,it can be abscess,esp if there is pain,neurofibroma, lipoma etc. Its important that you undergo an examination so the lump can be diagnosed. Since there are several possibilities only a complete examination can differentiate between them. But if there is any nerve involvement you may be feeling the numbness. At this point i suggest that you see a doctor and get examined so that an abscess can be ruled out.Because that needs to be treated urgently.
