I awoke to some painful hard knots on the outside

I awoke to some painful hard knots on the outside of my vaginal area. One has ruptured. It looked like a large black head. There's a couple more that have developed. One on the opposite side has a head and is really painful. I'm diabetic and have lymphedema in both legs. Please advise.

I have the exact same symptoms as listed previously concerning the hard, painful knot on the outside of my elbow. It s affecting my whole are. My question is what if it is a cyst? Can they be removed, should they be removed? What caused the cyst? If that is what it is. I haven t been to Dr. yet but am considering.

I just noticed that I have a small BB sized knot on the outside of my anal opening that is hard and seems to roll when I squeeze it between two fingers. Could this be a hemorrhoid? It is painful to the touch and didn t notice it until after a bowel movement when wiping.

Hi, I play football and I wrestle. Since my 8th grade year iv had knee issues. Always at the end of the seasons especially this one ( senior year football second round state playoffs) I begin to have a knot on the outside of my knee. I have a constant dull pain throughout the whole practice and the rest of the night. When im not running or being active on it, it causes no problems. The more the pain the bigger the knot gets. Even slightley pressing down on the knot causes discomfort. What could this be? I have talked to the 3 trainers at our school and none can really give me a straight forward answer.
