Small, hard lump near clitoris... What is it???

Hi,

For the last 2 days ive had a small lump near my clit (the size of a small bead). Its a bit painful so its bothering me. Its happened to be before and has gone down by itself so im not really worried.

Okay first of all do you shave down there? If so it might just be a ingrown hair. I get them all the time and they are a little painful and once they pop it burns when you use the rest room. If you have baby wipes or a wet wash cloth I would use that to clean up with if it pops open. Try getting a mirror to look it might have a white head on it so you will know it is an ingrown hair. Some times they do not get heads on them but if you squeeze them something might come out they pop and you will feel it pop. I am not sure if you need to pop it or not but I always pop mine and them make sure I keep it clean so it heals faster. It takes a little while to make yourself pop it open because it does hurt a little. Just my thought on what it might be.

i had something like this and it was a nabothian (spelling?) cyst.  it is benign - they cut it out right on doctor's office - it took 2 minutes.

so i noticed this small lump/bump. It doesnt hurt, its probably smaller then a pea, and i tried popping it because i wanted to know if it would pop, all that came out of it was a little blood. It is not an ingrown hair because its not where i shave. I have no other symptoms. I have had this bump for about a week. and it hasnt spread or got bigger after i tried popping it either...I am just scared if it is something like genital herpes, or warts. Someone please respond to this. I need advice.

hi, ive had the same thing that comes and goes over the years and it is painful especially when u wipe. it is nothing more than a non-cancerous cyst and very seldom it can be nothing more than a pesky boil.. it comes and goes due to 2 different reasons. sometimes what u eat or due to changes in your menstrual cycle. it is not anything serious but the best way to deal with it until it goes away which it does on its own is after u urinate wipe over it with a warm rag or run a baby wipe under warm water b4 wiping. it is also helpful to take a warm bath with 1 cup of acv atleast twice a week. (Apple Cider Vinegar) hope this helps.

(My resource is my gynecologist)....    Good Luck Ladies...

I, too, have suffered fron these bumps off and on over the years. I was curious...I read the above post regarding their recurrence relating to diet and/or periods, I have notice mine recur after periods of great sadness or particularly stress. Anyone else noticed a pattern in their breakouts?

Help! Please help! I have discovered, three to four days ago, a small little bump (about the size of a pea) to the left of my clit, like far left. It isn't by my vagina or anything. I don't shave down there. I've been sexually active for about 4 months, but it's only been with one guy. I know he hasn't been cheating around and he has not discovered any bumps hear his 'area'. I can't go to my mom. She doesn't even know about my boyfriend. I'm extremely worried that it could be an STD. The bump doesn't hurt when i sit normally. It hurts like heck when i apply pressure to it. I hope nothing is wrong with me. Please help if you know what it could be! :(

Ive had this before and I believe it was a zit...i would squeeze it and leave it and it would be painful then id leave it and by the next day it would be at a head and ready to pop.  I had to pop it a few times before it went away though...

I get a cyst on my clit about once a year or so. I've gone to the doctor once for it and she just had me put a warm/hot cloth on the area and repeat the process when the cloth got cold and the cyst would pop. It works for me, but the cyst has to be 'ready' to pop for it to work. But if its not ready, it will speed up the process. Its gross when it oozes out, but it is instant relief.

Goethe past year after I have sex I get a pea sized cyst like bump on my left lip on my vagina right near my clit. It usually goes away by itself. But I have yet to figure out what it is. Can anyone help? I don't think it's an std cause everything I have looked up hasn't shown anything like this. It's really odd. And I just want to know what it is.

I had something similar a few times now. The first time it was about the size of a pea inside the skin of the lower left vagina lip. But I could also move it around withou it hurting. Then I tried to pinch it and it was extremely painful. I continued to pinch it and it felt as if it popped. Nothing came out obviously seeing that it was underneath the skin. The second time I noticed it was about the size of maybe to peas. I was able to move it around. I tried pinching it and it seemed to get a little smaller. Then I moved it around and while doing that I lost it. I'm curious to know what it is. I want to ask my doctor about it but u haven't had one for her to actually feel and examine. It's concerning me more and more now.
