Is a small lump in the genital area a symptom of STD?

hey! i know this may sound weird and embarrassing but I think i might have gotten an STD the reason why is because I recently noticed that I have a small bump in my genital area and i think another one is coming and i am scared to death. Honestly I do not know if it is because I recently shaved but i am also really scared and embarrassed to go to a doctor in person.

Since you have not mentioned about sexual intercourse, protection or so, it is difficult to give details.
As a general rule if you have unprotected sexual behavior then only there is a chance of any STD.
If not so then this can be a small boil or so.
So do not worry if there is no history of unprotected sex.
Also get the blood STD panel done so that proper treatment can be done if there is any positive finding.
If all these tests are negative then why to worry.
If anything is positive then you should consult our Doctor or a Specialist for clinical examination and get treated accordingly.

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

I have received oral sex last week without a condom and was worried i might have caught something. I was stressing out very hard until I got checked this week and tested negative for everything except herpes 1 (I am almost positive I have contracted this much earlier on as i have seen bumps on my genitals before). I was told by people at planned parenthood that this is extremely common and most people have this virus. I still am seeing about 4 small red bumps on my genitals and a small cut on my shaft. All of which is NOT painful at all. Also on the test results page it stated that a positive test would be greater than 1.09 antibodies and I tested a 1.52 in antibodies. Does this mean I am having an outbreak? If so, am I going to infect my partner? Please let me know if I am overreacting or if I should be getting additional help. Thank you

I m freaking out!!! At least 2 years ago I noticed some finger like bumps on my labia. They really don t bother me other than the fact that I over obsess about the fact that they are there. They are very soft and are the same color as the surrounding area. Sometimes when I touch them they are a little tender but I can t really say that they hurt. Could they be an STD or are they vestibular papillae?
