Swelling in Groin area

A 30 year old female complains of mild swelling in the left side pubic area. On palpation, pea-size swelling noted. It's hard & tender, present deep in the skin and is attached to the skin (not present over the skin). The area is mildly red in color. It does not look like folliculitis and no small papules are present in the area. The patient said swelling disappears after hot compression and reappears again the next day. She has a history of sebaceous cyst excision in the right pubic area. Should she be worried about cyst? What should be the management? I don't have pic. Just got the details over phone.

? SEBACEOUS CYST/LYMPHADENITIS
This cystic swelling has to be investigated. If scan shows cyst, it can be surgically removed & histopathology studied.
