Small lump on vagina lip

I've had a hard lump on my left lip of my vagina for a half a year now. It's not painful at all and the only time it makes me worry is when I feel it. Tonight I tried to pop it and nothing worked to get it out. I steralized a pin and popped it and tons of blood came running out and then that was it. It's still there though and the same size. I'm starting to get worried if I should go to the doctors or not. I shave so it could be an ingrown hair but I'd think that it would be gone by now if it was.

What do you think it is?

maybe it was a cyst? I always heard that its best to not mess with them and see the dr. I know I am in that boat right now... just waiting impatiently for my appt. LOL

Good Luck and I hope you get some answers!

Thank you. I'm definitely nervous about it. I have a doctors appointment on Monday. Just a regular check up. I'm definitely nervous about it all. I don't know if I'm going to end up telling the doctor.

I think you should tell your doctor, just for peace of mind. Stuff like herpes won't last that long, so I don't think you should worry about it being anything like that. Maybe it's a boil that isn't draining? I bet your doctor could figure out how to make it go away :)

I have what sounds like the same thing. I went to the GYN on Monday. Mine is a sebacous cyst. I felt irritation down there, and I sat in a sitz bath on Sunday. Monday morning, it drained blood and clear fluid -  then it felt better, but was still there, but much smaller. I was able to get in to have it looked at. She said it may never go completly away (yuk), but I guess as long as it feels OK, then I won't worry. At this time - 3 days later, I don't really notice it's there, unless I go prodding aroud.
Hope this helps -  you should still get it looked at, but it's probably nothing but a cyst. Also - soaking and warm washcloths will help if it's sore.

I have the exact same thing, it is almost like I wrote this myself. The only difference is that I tried to pop it and nothing happened. Does it feel like a bb from a gun or something. or a hard pea. I am afraid to to the doctor, I am afriad that its cancer.

I have a small lump about the size of a pea on the top left side of my vagina. it is round and underneath the skin, it has a bit of a whiteish colour to it and close to the top it gets a darker colour almost like an ingrown hair maybe under the skin? I do shave, so im wondering could this be an ingrown hair.. I tried squeezing it but no luck. Just wondering if this could be some sort of cancer or STD, I am not sexually active and never have been ive just been felt down there. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated!
Thanks
