I understand why I wasn't sure what you were describing. The mons pubis is the area you are talking about. I had never heard of it called mon before.
And to answer your question that area is just fatty connective tissure covered with pubic hair. Since you said you are overweight, this is another area that has increased in size becaue of excess fatty tissue.
If you were to lose weight, this area would also become smaller.
Unfortunatly, a doctor is not always available to answer every question on this forum. All moderators on this forum are trained medical professionals. Although I am a student pursuing my bachelors of nursing, I have been in the nursing profession for 10 years.
