Lump under the skin? Any ideas

I have felt a strange pea sized firm lump under the skin just in the region of - I suppose - my womb?

I had just finished my workout, and was wearing lycra - and was just pressing down on my tummy area - when I felt it.

It isn't painful and there is no redness - so it isn't a pimple or cyst under the skin.

My plan is to give it a couple of days and see if it goes away. If not then I will go to the GPs to get it investigated.

Can anyone put my mind at rest??

I'm no expert, but I had a worrying lump once and it turned out to be a sebaceous cyst, which is completely unworrying. That wasn't painful either.

It isn't visible on the skin.

It is underneath - on whatever body part is under there. Just under the top part of my pubic hair.

Sebaceous cysts are under the skin, not visible above it. But like I said I'm no expert, that's just one thing I had! I'd book a GP appt now if it's worrying you.

Thanks for the reply thurlow.

I'll give it a couple of days and see if any changes.

I had exactly the same thing behind my ear, which was a sebaceous cyst. It was as you describe, like a pea under all the layers of skin. It was there for several weeks. But they don't do any harm. Go and see your GP if you're worried, but I'm sure that's what it will be.

I think I am just more concerned due to its location.

Overactive imagination - and googling... smile

Is in not in your gland area down there? I get pea sized lumps in my neck in the gland area when run down so expect its similar down there?

It vanished on its own.

I had just plucked up courage to ask DH to have a feel at the weekend - and I couldn't find it.

Must have just been something and nothing.

No jamtoast def not a gland - it was on the front of my pubic bone just a couple of inches below where my bikini line ends.
