Suggest remedy for lumps in thigh & groin area

Male, 17-I have a small, slightly painful lump between my inner thigh and groin area, under the scrotum, to the right and slightly beneath my right testicle. It is not visible to the naked eye and I sometimes have trouble finding it but i can definitely feel it below the skin. It was definitely not there before and I'm not sure as to what I should do, as there appears to be nothing visibly wrong.

Hi,
If it is a small lesion, it could be secondary to sweat. It is called as a carbuncle. It slowly increases in size, might become painful and ruptures.
Keeping the area dry, washing well and improved nutrition could help you.
Whenever it ruptures, wash it cleanly as it could spread to surrounding areas. Take NSAID painkillers if you have pain.
An antibiotic cream can be used for local application.
If you have any further queries, happy to help again
