I have had this annoying knot on my left side at my bikini line for about 6 years now. Off and on it tends to hurt me. I have notice over the 6 yrs that I have started getting little knots on my right side. Lately the bigger one has been really bothering me. Now my previous OBGYN wanted me to do the wait and see approach. My current doctor didn't see anything when he did my surgery in April. Does anybody have any suggestions or ideas as to what it might be?


I am very worried as my mother has just been diagnosised with Lymphoma. The actual source is unknown as of right now. She had a total hystro about 3 - 4 years ago. My aunt was diagnosised with stage 4 ovarian cancer. I am gonna schedule a check up to get it looked at but I was hoping for suggestions or ideas.


Thank you ladies.

Hey Tabitha! I remember you mentioning the knot on your left side. Initially my first thought was that it could be scar tissue if you had any endo removed from the left side. But since you had surgery in April and they didn't see anything and also now that you have it on the right side I'm not sure what it could be. Is it an uncomfortable feeling/dull ache or is it a sharp pain? This one is tough because you definitely have something going on, might not be anything to worry about but none the less its there and I'm not sure what can be done since nothing was detected in your surgery. Keep in mind that doctors aren't perfect and can miss things so definitely go for the check up and if you aren't happy with their plan find another and get a second opinion.

Let us know how it goes
