Large lump on inner thigh, slightly rose in colour, feels hard. Suggestions?

I am 18 years old. I woke up the other morning with a large lump on my inner thigh, near my groin. The area is slightly rosier than the rest of my skin but not really red, inflamed, or warm to the touch. It feels fairly hard and is tender when I press on it. I was wondering how serious it could be and if I should see a doctor about it

Welcome to healthcare magic forum
Thank you for your query
i understand your concern regarding skin problem .
it look like sign of inflammation which is due to infection or insect bite.
you need to apply antibiotic cream over it.
please do not press or popped the lesion as there is always chance of infection,
in severe case you need to take oral medicine also.
it is better to consult dermatologist if not improved
wear loose and cotton cloths.
I hope I answered your query
