A lump above the pubic bone normally indicates a swollen lymph node. Other possible reasons are hernia or ingrown pubic hair. A swollen lymph node can be a sign of an infection, like a urinary tract infection for example, and can usually be successfully treated with antibiotics. Swollen lymph nodes may also be cysts or benign tumours, but in some instances a lump can also be a sign of a cancerous growth. Therefore, it is necessary for anyone affected to consult their doctor who will prescribe the correct course of treatments. Lumps in general are usually referred to as tumours, and they may be benign or malignant. In a tumour, one particular type of cell (such as a glandular, fat or muscle cell) has escaped the normal controls on growth and started to multiply. The most important characteristic is whether these tumour cells can invade other adjacent cell types, and spread around the body (i.e. They are malignant tumours) or not (in which case they are benign). Many people wonder if small bumps or lumps on the body are something to worry about. Most lumps and swellings are benign (not cancerous) and are harmless, especially the kind that feel soft and roll easily (lipomas). A lump or swelling that appears suddenly (over 24 - 48 hours) and is painful is usually caused by an injury or an infection.

Not a usual site for cancer but you need to keep an eye on it and if it increases in size then you must have a doctor check it out. It could possibly even be an ingrown hair.
