I found a small lump about a centimeter or a bit more in diameter on my upper inner thigh a while ago. It was quite solid, not painful at all, slightly but not especially pinker than my skin colour, and not in a place where in could rub against clothing or the other thigh. It disappeared after a week or two, but every couple months or sometimes longer it will reappear for a short time in various places around my upper thigh area. It does not irritate me enough to cause me serious concern and as they disappear quickly and for long periods of time, but I would really like to know what it is. I have recently passed an STI test and it is definitely not MRSA or a staph infection judging by the pictures I've found when I googled it. Any ideas?
