Painless lump on inner thigh. Sebaceous cyst?

Hello, I am a 21 year old female and today I just discovered a bean sized lump on my inner thigh, right on the bikini line next to my genital area. It s painless and feels like a ball, almost moving around? I ve been searching online and I ve come across everything from a cyst to a hernia . From my symptoms I am thinking maybe a sebaceous cyst? I really don t know what to think. Any insight would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

DEAR SIR/MADAM

THERE ARE MANY CAUSES FOR LUMPS IN THE THIGH. SOME OF THE COMMON CAUSES ARE
1. BOILS
2. CARBUNCLES
3. CYSTS
4. BLISTERS
AND ABSCESSES.

COMMONLY WHEN EVER LUMPS ASSOCIATED WITH INFECTION OR INFLAMMATIONS IT WILL BE PAINFUL SO
CYSTS ARE ALWAYS PAINLESS UNTIL IT GETS INFECTED OR INFLAMMED.
IT IS LIKELY TO BE SEBCEOUS CYST, SINCE IT IS NEAR GENITAL AREA ITS BETTER YOU GET TREATED/EXCISED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

THANK YOU
