Hello I’m 32 years old and have had issues with this for a few years. Usually they go away on their own. I’ve done the baths tried salts in the bath no help! It hurts sooooooo bad! The right side of my pelvic area is starting to hurt as well as the inside of my thigh. This gland  is easily the size of a golf ball and a half. I don’t know what to do! I’m starting to freak out. I’ve never had one drain. The swelling just goes away. I can hardly sit or stand. 😭

    You need to go to your Dr to have it drained. It's going to be painful, but you'll feel so much better afterwards. You also probably need antibiotics.  Hope you feel better soon

    Denise sounds like you have a big abscess , Did you go to urgent care to have it drained? If not,,,please go as soon as possible, you will feel much better after the pus is gone

      I haven’t. I just switched jobs and of course no insurance for 90 days.  I’m going to apply for Obamacare tonight. My pelvic region on the left is now swollen and hurts bad to touch. I’m a mess.

      I think it is draining. Could anyone tell me where the drainage would come from? I cannot see an opening anywhere.

    I’ll be going to the urgent care after work. I called my family doctor and she said i need to go ASAP. Thanks for all the advice ☺️
