Cancer or ingrown hair?

I know it sounds ridiculous,  but my anxiety is off the charts. I am 20 years old and discovered a sizeable, reddening movable lump on my inner labia majora tonight. I became convinced it was cancer and started crying and it is now 6am. I did trim this area with scissors recently as my pubic hairs grow very long there. When I looked at the lump more closely I did see that hair was growing out of it.  And then I spotted another similar lump growing hair near the bottom of my genitals/between my cheeks in another area where I trimmed a lot of hair,  red, hair growing out of it but a bit smaller. My personal hygiene has been bad recently as I am in a depressive slump so I can go 2/3/4 days without showering and this wasn't there (to my knowledge) when I last showered (2 days ago). Have any of you ladies with cancer had hair growing out of your lump? 

It looks like an ingrown hair I would get on the pubic mound but it's the placement that took me aback + the fact that I have an anxiety disorder. I didn't realise I had trimmed the hair so low that ingrown hairs could come from it but I did try to get rid of it as much as possible with the scissors. Any kind words are appreciated, it's almost 7am here and I've been up all night worrying.
