Lump near my vagina

Four days ago I found a small lump (half the size of a pea) growing near my vagina, where my public hair is. It feels hard to touch, and there's no pain when I press on it. I'm not in a sexual relationship, and haven't been for a few months. I have no other symptoms, but am terrified this could be a sign of cancer. I realize I'm probably over reacting, but after spending ages browsing the web, this seems to be the only place that I could get an answer. I hope someone can offer me some advice as to what this could be.

May this is an ingrown hair follicle.  If it is sore at all to the touch, it may be inflammed?

I just discovered a small lump right near my vagina by my pubic bone as well.  Mine is actually a little bigger...the size of a small lima bean.  Did you find out what your's may be?  Mine doesn't hurt either and kind of rolls around under my skin.  I just had a baby 6 weeks ago, so I was thinking that it was related to that.

I found one of those also.  I am terrified of the doctor and if it is not serious, I really don't want to go.  I am not pregnant and don't have any children.  My only guess is that it is some sort of cyst.

Have you considered it to be a Bartholin gland or abscess?  That's the area they would be found.

i have that as well and like the other girl, I am 15 years old, never had sex of any sort and I just visited the gyno for the first time yesterday.  I didn't mention it to her becuase I didn't realize it until I got home.  I am getting blood work done next week but for a different reason.  I am kind of scared and I as well have been searching the internet, but found nothing.  If you find anything else, please let me know.

I have one as well. I just noticed it last night. I'm 16 and I'm in a sexual relationship. But what makes me scared is I got it right after I had sex. I was my boyfriend's first so I'm not all that worried about it being an std. It doesn't hurt when I touch it or anything and it feels like a small ball under my skin and it's red like the skin is irritated. Has anyone seen the doctor about theirs yet?

I know what you mean, i'm 13.
even MORE embarresing.
I've had myne for like 6 months though so i'm even more scared.
i don't want my dad to have a look at it. which is what my mum would want, because dad does first aid for his work. but this is nothing like anything he would know about but i know thats what mum would want.

I had cancer scare earlier this month. But now i found lumps near my vagina. itchy. but the lumps don't hurt. so that's what I think it's Cancer. another is yeast infection. But my periods were on schedule, but at times they were heavy.
