Hi!
I wish I could be more helpful, but it is impossible to make a diagnosis over the internet.
If you had any type of trauma to the area (  eg. a fall, or rough intercourse) it is possible
that you have a hematoma which is a large bruise.  Another possibility is a Bartholins
gland cyst or abcess (abscess). It would probably be a very good idea to get checked out!
Good luck!
