Brief Answer: Hello, I would be happy to help... Detailed Answer: You are describing almost perfectly something called a "sebaceous inclusion cyst". These are common in the area that you are describing. If it is bothersome, your OB/GYN can incise and drain it or remove it alltogether. Usually, they are diagnosed on exam, and reassurance is the usual treatment. I hope that this helps. Please ask if you have additional questions.
