Are lumps in the abdomen warning signs of any serious medical condition?

I have a growth under my stomach that is lightly black in color and if squeezed oil and what looks like blood comes out what could this be. I shave down there a lot and though maybe it was an Ingrown hair but it gets tender and sore after rubbing or squeezed.

General Surgeon 's  Response

Noted your short but an elucidate history about a growth on abdomen that when squeezed oozes out blood and oily material, shaved a lot in this area, looks to be pubic area. The character of the lump in lower part that is most probably the pubic area indicates this to be a cyst of skin origin hence the oozing out of oily material and blood.

Since this is a cyst it will secrete the liquids till the inner lining is alive. Hence I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Consult a General Surgeon for clinical evaluation, investigations and request for complete excision of the lump for the following reasons:
Complete excision guarantees no recurrence.
Getting rid of a lump that is not a normal structure of body.
And histopathology confirms the diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
