What does a lump in the groin area indicate?

I got a Brazilian wax about 2 days ago and now i feel this weird hard lump in the area between labia majora & my leg. i have no clue as to what this can be and its painful. im worried. i looked everything up and it says it may be a Bartholin s Cyst but i have no clue what that means or why i d have one. this has never happened before.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The lump between the vulva and groin is likely a lymph node or folliculitis. Bartholin's cyst occurs between labia majora and labia minora, and it is a cyst of one of the gland of the labia majora. I will suggest you consult an OBGYN specialist for proper examination and treatment accordingly.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

My husband has had persistent groin pain for over 2 years. He had hernia repair 4 years ago that was done with mesh. Since then, he has never been completely symptom free. He was recently RE=EXAMINE by his primary care doctor who found a new lump in his groin. Ultrasound indicates it was not a new hernia. I want him to have a CT scan to make sure we know what is going on...I am fearful that something more serious has been overlooked for quite some time because his MD was thinking is was related to the original hernia

I have a lump on my side in the crease of leg, that seems to gurgle occasionally. 3 drs have told me that it s a lymph node and one that it was a hernia . I haven t been back because I can t afford it. It started on my right side over two months ago. After a month or so it seemed to spread out, then my side started hurting in the same place, It hurts on both sides though and gets more painful when I drive alot.
