On the inside of my thigh I have one pea sized hard bump that is red and resembles a pimple except for the fact that the bump feels as though it is underneath the skin. I feel it could simply be an ingrown hair - but I am worried it is something serious.

Does this sound familiar?

Could be an ingrown hair, could be a benign cyst. Both are common and generally harmless.

But some cysts aren't benign, so your best bet is to ask your general doctor or gynecologist to have a look to be sure.

Thanks! I'll be seeing my gyno at the end of the month, so I'll put it on my "to ask" list!

Should be fine to wait until then. Just don't mess with it, and if it gets a good deal larger or becomes painful, get in sooner.

Does a woman have sinus glands on/or around her labia? This is a question that several people want to know and can not find the answer via internet. we know it sounds a little bizarre, but I guess no question is a Crazy question, right? This was told to someone by a GYN locally and has really puzzled several ppl... Please, if someone has the answer, enlighten all of us on this matter..this does not have anything to do with the question before, but when we read it, it opened the door for us to ask this one.. thanks

(In the future, please post new topics outside someone else's topic, okay?

My guess is that person mentioned there being glands in and around the vulva, and they assumed that to mean sinus glands.

No, the glands of the sinuses are not in or around the vulva. Those are connected to, unsurprisingly, the sinuses.

However, there are several OTHER sorts of glands, namely lymph glands, sebaceous/sweat glands, and the vestibular, Skene's and Bartholin's glands.
