    Hernia

    If you’ve ever burst out of a corset you’ll understand what a hernia is like. In the abdominal wall there is a set of muscles that act a bit like a corset, keeping the bodies internal organs in place. Read more →

    Hello, for a while now I've had a lump on my vagina - it's near the groin area but not on the groin. The lump doesn't hurt but it can be moved a little when applying pressure to it. It doesn't seem to be going away?

    I have an enquiry regarding my Testicals. I'm very active,I also participate playing football twice a week. A few weeks ago, I strained my groin on two occasions and it took longer than a few days to recover. maybe a week later i developed a sharp pain which caused swelling in my right testi. it felt liked a insect bite which it could be, but as i felt this, there seems to an almond sized lump in between the right groin & testi but within the sack. I dont know how to explain this, but it reduced in swelling and is back to normal, but still has this lump inside. My systems are all fine and nothing effected. can you shed some light on this please?

    Magnolias a or a drawing salve to draw the puss and ingrown hair to the surface

    Leave it for about a month and then see if it has changed if it has stayed about the same then try to gently pop it but don't force it if you have to apply any pressure then it is not ready to pop but if it pops with easily then continue to gently squeeze it until it starts to bleed this means that all the puss is out then have a shower imedeatly to clean the area and put a plaster over the area to stop the lump filling with puss again keep the plaster on until it has healed about 3/4 days

    Hi I am 49 yr old and have had a vasectomy 20 odd yr ago, I have had pain several times in my groin/testes area. I now have stringy like veins running from my left testicle & also a small lump which runs along the tubes and is near to the edge of the scrotum. I have been for an ultra sound but got the opinion that the guy doing the exam was not to interested that day during which time he failed to notice even the small lump.

    It could be a limpoma, I've just had one removed from my groin, I was told at the hospital after an ultra sound check that it was a hernia.

    I've got a lump down below on the the outside of my vagina the size of a pea. It's under the skin and doesn't stick out much, if you pinch around it your fingers touch as if its a little grissle but sore. I've had an absus on the inside of my leg right at the top near my bum and vagina and had to have an emergency operation to have it flushed out as it spread up to my groin and have it packed everyday. This lump came up about a week ago and I was given anti biotics but it hasn't changed. Could it be this or could it be another abusus again as I didn't know about it untill I was in agony and couldn't walk?

    Hi Jemma, I had the operation under my arms. They took the skin away, took all the sweat glands out and grafted skin from my legs under my arms. I'm not sure how they would do it in your groin area but I had one armpit done at a time as I had to keep my arm up for about 10 days until they took the staples out. I was in hospital until they took the staples out and I had a tube and a vacuum coming from the dressing to collect the excess blood for quicker healing. The scarring isnt very nice under my arms and it took me about 4 years before I would wear a sleeveless top but when I think of the years of pain and suffering it was worth it. How are you with medication? I researched HS myself and and requested a dual antibiotic, clindamycin and rifampicin last year as I was getting it quite severely in my groin. It is a 3 month course and it worked wonders for me. I have been HS free now for 6 months.

    Hi marie im not sure if iv had that medication but I will look into that. I allway say il try anything if it may helps iv tryed a lot of medications over the years but nothing seems to work its like I get amuned to everything I try the surgeons are now talking about doing under my arms aswell as my groin. All I'm worried about is how UN mobile I'm gonna be after the op and how long iI'm in hospital for because I have 3 kids to look after and 1 is a baby I do have my husband there but its not the same as me lol

    I'm 25 my names Nicola and I have found a hard lump on my groin it's really sore and uncomfortable I had sex with my partner on Friday n Saturday and now this lump has appeared can anyone tell me what it is

    what was the cure

    I'm glad I came across this site. I too have a pea-sized lump in the inside of my vagina and since googling symptoms, it does look like a bartholin gland cyst, but I'm not a doctor. I'm so embarrassed to go to my doctors about it too. I had to be cut and forceps delivery with my son 2 years ago, and noticed that it appeared not long after my stitches dissolved then disappeared again. Its now come back and is a hard pea-sized lump although, not painful itself, but am getting pain in my groin/bum cheek parallel to where the lump is so not sure if its pressing on a nerve or something. I've had it about 3 months now and it only bothers me every now and again. I don't know if it is something to do with having a baby via forceps or not :0( I've started scaring myself though as its a 'lump', I'm just too embarrassed to go to my doctors. Its not weeping pus or anything, its a solid lump.

    I have had Folliculitis for over 2 years and it appears on my right groin its very sore and painful. I have been to my GP he keeps on prescribing me antibiotics then they give me thrush so i'm in more pain i feel like i'm going round in circles all the time. Three weeks ago i found another lump i went straight to A.E it was an abscess on my right groin again i had to have that removed through surgery. I am under a dermatology and i feel like they are not helping me either.

    Teri,thank you! I've just got medical advice about a groin abcess (tmi?)which was misdiagnosed as folliculitis, but now realised it must be HS. It checks all the boxes. Got to get on my GPs case now... You've saved me a lot of future pain

    I'm 16 and I have noticed a small lump on my testicles, I have also been to the doctors about a ache in my groin. Is this testicular cancer? I don't think it is, but I may be wrong. I thought it may be an Appensix of the Testis. A small lump thats painless and harmless? Thanks.

    I think i may have this disease. I thought the lump in my armpit was a bug bite, except it frequently returns. I found a lump in my groin area months ago that would return and I would just ignore it. now it has gotten bigger. It is sooo unfair that there is no cure! its very heart breaking. I'm scared my fiance will not want to stay with me as I also have HPV and impending blindness.

    I've got a lump on my outer lip, it's like a few little spots with white heads grouped together and is very painful. My vagina is very itchy and I bleed a couple of days ago but wasn't on my period and it was only one day. I've also found a lump under my skin pea size by my hair line on my groin. I'm 16 and sexually active but have only ever been with one guy and he has only slept with me. I'm so scared I may have vulvar cancer?!?
