  • An appointment really should be made with a gyno, just to be sure. It may be nothing, but it's better to be safe rather than sorry.

  • Thankyou all! but I just didn't know if it could be a cyst... or hernia?...

  • May be nothing serious but needs checking out.

  • Umm...the doctor? Not to be rude, but my butt would be on the phone right now instead of on here. That is to be taken seriously. Not a question for others to answer, or a google question.

  • you were being rude. i was just curios as to what other people think.. if it was common. it's 3:30 in the morning. clearly i can't call a doctor right now. i planned on it first thing in the morning.. i was just wondering if anyone else had this problem so i wouldnt stress about it as much..

  • I have gotten those before when I was younger... it wasn't ever anything. But, you just never of course get her checked out.

    If she is having a fever or any weird feeling it could be something serious...for me it was usually from being overheated down there and from razor burns...sometimes it would itch but that's all it was. Best of luck sweetie :)

  • It might just be from shaving i have lumps on my skin from it and i asked my doctor not too long ago and he said it was just skin but he said too if it get uncomfortable to come back. so if it hurts her she should go and get it checked.

  • Could be an ingrown hair, could be a 'boil', could be a cyst - get an appointment and get her checked.
