Question: I just noticed a large bump (under the skin), on the left side of my pubic bone area. Approx. two finger widths above the leg crease. No pain. Should this be evaluated? I've never had this; worried. Bump is golf ball sized.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
I would like to know few details.
1. Is the bump soft or hard to touch ?
2. Does it disappear when you lie down ?
If possible upload a photograph of the involved area.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.
Waiting for your response.
Thank you.
