I'm 43, there's nothing to send a picture of the pain is on my mons pubic area, but there is no swelling, redness etc. No other past illness. I was just wondering if my lymph nodes we're in the area or if it was a hernia. It only hurts to the touch and I feel it when I cough
Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 10 days ago

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
There can be an inflammation from ingrown hair.
A muscle pull or strain is possible.
Coughing can cause the pull.
Lymph node or hernia would cause swelling which you are not having.
You can apply warm moist compress now.
You can soak a towel or cloth in warm water & place over it.
It would help in healing by increasing blood flow.
This brings in blood cells, antibodies.
You can take anti inflammatory pain medicine like Motrin or Advil.
Please take it after food.
If you do not notice improvement, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

The tenderness is about 4" away from where the ingrown was. Do you think it's related? And how long does it take to settle down?
Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 10 days ago

Was the ingrown hair above or below the area?

The inflammation fluid may gravitate down but it is unlikely to go down 4 inch down.

There can be muscle pull.

However, you can take Motrin or Advil for pain.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
