Special Tests: none
Diagnosis:

Cysts; are noncancerous growths that occur under the skin, including the groin area. They are usually harmless and painless, and most of the time, they resolve on their own without medical intervention. They can either be epidermoid or sebaceous cysts. Cysts are not infected and therefore not contagious; however, they are usually painful, contain pus, and redden when infected. The patient in this case only reported having a lump, and during the examination, she observed she denied any pain around the abdomen or groin areas, hence the cyst diagnosis (Beaux & Patel, 2018).

Differential diagnosis;

STDs; lumps around the groin region can also be caused by sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia, HIV, and gonorrhea. However, such infections are usually accompanied by other symptoms, including discharge from the vagina, painful lumps, odor from the vaginal, swollen lymph nodes, burning urination, and lower abdominal pain. The patient, in this case, denied experiencing all the other symptoms associated with STDs except the existence of lumps, and therefore it is unlikely that she has an STD infection.

Urinary tract infection; involves infection of any part of the urinary tract. It can also cause the appearance of lumps or swellings around the groin region. However, the possibility of the UTI is low since the associated symptoms such as burning and frequent urination and presence of WBC and cloudy urine were negative (Beaux & Patel, 2018).

Plan/Therapeutics
Plan: The care provider, in this case, should apply a wait and watch strategy; since the lumps are only one day old and they are not painful care provider should wait to see how they progress before initiating treatment. If they are cysts, they will resolve on their own without other symptoms.

However, the care provider should educate the patients on symptoms to look for and schedule a follow-up visit to assess their progress (Beaux & Patel, 2018).
