Hello, my worries have been growing for my girlfriend who for about 3-4 months now has a small bump on her lower stomach area, actually the bump is in the pubic area next to her right leg. The bump is about 1cm in diameter and is to feel and look identical to what is resulted after a moquito has sucked your blood. Only difference is that this bump wount go away for a long time now. We have been speculating that this might be caused by shaving, so she stopped shawing for 3 weeks and still it is there, although it was about 0,5cm bigger in range at the beginning. It doesn't hert even if pressed on, but it wakes a bit worries. Do you guys have any idea on what it might be?

Thank you!

I'm not sure I'm understanding where exactly it is: in the indented area between her genitals and her thigh?

If so, and it's been there a while, it's likely nothing to sweat over, and is just a dermatological issue like a benign cyst, or a simple pore infection, or a swollen gland. So, she can ask a general doctor about it or a dermatologist.

But if she's got no other health concerns, I don't see that it'd be anything she needs to rush into the doc about.
