What is the lump in between my vagina and inner thigh?

I have a lump about the size of a dime and its oval shaped. Its right between my vagina and my inner thigh. There is no head on it and it isn t hard. It doesn t hurt unless I mess with it and its red. I don t know what to do because I don t have insurance to go to the doctor. How do I get rid of it ? What could it be ?

Hello and welcome to HCM,
A soft lump between vagina and inner thigh could be due to enlargement of inguinal lymph node.
A clinical assessment of the lesion is necessary for treatment.
Thus, you will have to consult your doctor.
In addition, an aspiration cytology of the lump is also required.
Aspiration cytology is an office procedure wherein cells are aspirated using a needle, cells are spread on a glass slide and stained wit appropriate stain.
The cells are examined under microscope.
This investigation determine the site and nature of the lesion.
Depending on the type of lesion, appropriate management is planned.
Enlargement of inguinal lymph nodes is common after genital tract or urinary tract infection / inflammation.

Thanks and take care
