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.

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.

I ve been seen by two doctors, now. I have a bony lump, roughly the size of a golfball in my groin. It is painless, except when confronted with significant pressure. My doctor has confirmed it is a tumor. What is the likelihood that it may be cancerous? Are there cancers that start as lumps in the groin, particularly that large?
