Have a Small bump in groin area

I’m a woman in my 30s, have a small bump in groin area. It has been 2 months since I got it and it is painful when I press on it. One day, there is a pus discharge from the bump and the size got reduced. I thought it is already healed but somehow it grows back to small bump and same thing repeat again. Should I be concerned with this?
