fat lump

Hello, I noticed that i have one of those fat lumps under the skin of my labia! Is there anything I should be worried about or are they just something that causes no harm?

Hello,
From your description it looks that you are talking about lipomas. They are benign tumors composed of mature fat cells. Vulva and labial skin are rare sites to get these. Treatment is by surgical approach and you cannot remove them at home. I would recommend a dermatologist’s consultation for this. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
