I am 22 and I have the same exact thing! This seems like a real young woman problem! I asked my doctor about it and he said it was a gland and not to worry, but it may persist for up to a year! This stinks huh?!

I seem to be the youngest on this site to have had this. I'm fifteen and I have a lump slightly bigger then a pea in the valley where my right thigh and groin meet. There is no head or coloring and it's almost like a ball under my skin. It hurts to touch and I'm really worried, I'm to the doctor in about two days.

I'm 25, had one since puberty on the right side right on the bikini line. swells up during or around my cycle. I used to think it was a rub sore from wearing the wrong undies but I've been wearing thongs (which help) for 5 years now. no excuses. It shrinks completely down after three or so days but it does go from green pea to chick pea in those three days.

I have the same thing. In like the crease where my leg meets my groin area. It's under the skin but still very noticeable. It is tender and hurts. I think I've had the same thing before but much smaller and less painful. (it went away in a couple weeks) but this one hurts a lot. It's scary. If it continues to hurt and doesn't get smaller I'm going to see a doctor.

Everyone here seems to be young. But i am in my late sixties and have the same problem. My GYN said its like acne and not to worry about it. When i take a shower i put a warm wash cloth there for awhile and that seems to help bring them to the surface and they break on their on within a few days. Mine never got walnut sizr but they leave a blue/black mark, not pretty.

I have been to the doctor so many times in the last 4 years trying to solve my "Cyst" problem. They even took a big chunk out of my leg "removing the cyst" but it returned. Antibiotics the same way. It always returned. I have tried everything yet nothing worked. I had these things at least once a month if not more. At first I thought it was related to my mentsral cycle, but then found it occuring out of sequence with it too.

I decided that the cyst was occuring from something I was putting into my body. After monitoring what I ate for 4 months, the cyst appeared every time I ate onions...... Yup, believe it or not, onions. I am now 2 months cyst-free, avoiding onions like the pleague. This has been difficult as onions are in everything, but I will go without certain foods to be free from these painful, miserable cysts.

I wear my snug jeans again, got rid of boy boxers & back into girl panties, it still has not returned.

My advise to you all is to do the same. monitor what you eat. Alergies can appear as long as 4 - 6 days after consumption.

HI i'm a 16 year old girl who has a problem very similar to everyone else. I have a large, hard, walnut sized lump on the left side near my thigh on my genital area. It's very painful to touch and it is difficult to walk or move around without it hurting. sometimes it does hurt on its own, the pain kinda feels like its popping but its not. there is no head or pus draining out of it. my periods are also really screwy, it may skip one month and come back the next, or i get 2 months like im supposed to, and then it skips again. I get small pimples on my genital area from time to time.. i dont know what's wrong with me :(

Hope this helps.
From the pics that I've seen of a bartholin cyst, they are all shown inside the inner walls of the labia. I am having the same problem except mine is between the inner thigh and vagina. It's been about a month since it first appeared and has also grown the size of a walnut....and has become quite painful....I plan to make an appointment with the doc this week

I have multiple HUGE cyst like knots on both sides of where my inner thigh meets my groin. I have lived with these (fluxuating in sizes and flaring up) for about 15 years now. I made the mistake of mashing on it and I felt it pop inside my leg and make a "tube like" lump. DO NOT MASH THEM! I also popped it with a pin/needle and now i have to drain it during flare ups.DO NOT POP THEM. Blood and puss comes out, and ocassionally a seed like thing will block the hole during drainage and I have to pull it out with tweezers) its really frighting and gross and left purple and pink scars on me that will never go away. It affect my self esteem during sex and I hate them. After years of being misdiagnosed from (swollen gland) I finally found out that it is Hidradenitis Suppurativa. PLEASE DO NOT LET THE DOCTORS MISDIAGNOSE YOU. Knowledge is power.

well im 16 and i have one right above my left hip bone....and its sort of painful when im sitting for a while ( like how i am now trying to find answers lol ), and it hurts when i walk or curl up t night to go to sleep. Online i haven't read anyones complaints about their "lumps" being quite bluish as if it were a bruise or something. thats my case and it always feels cold. The coldness is the kind of coldness that yu get in your hand if youy raise your arm for an hour ( as if blood is draining out or something)- has anyone felt similarly??
i am experiencing the same sort of thing mine is also that colour and also cold but it is in my groin in the crease of my right leg im 15 and i am also worried so i have booked an appointment with my doctor and i will get back to you as soon as i can with any answers i can give, best wishes :)x

it seems a lot of you are suffering with this and are worried, i would suggest to speak to your doctor about it, it might be nothing but its worth making sure i am 15 and am going to mine about my lump today and if i get any information that may help any of you i will be sure to inform you x best wishes :)x
and for those who wonder it is possibly not related to your sexual past or current sex life as i have one and have never had sex, hope this helps
