Swelling in genital area
I'm 60.  Fairly good health.  Diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago in roof of mouth.  Cancer free now.  Recently I have had a swelling in the vaginal area --- lip.  Swelling goes down at night while I am resting, but swells again when up.  Had this happen maybe 15 years ago when I fell at work.  My legs went out from under me and I almost did the "splits".  Same thing is happening now, but I didn't fall.   I recently was laid off work and carried several boxes of personal possessions downstairs from my second story office location.  Been on the job for 17 years so there was quite a bit.

It hurts a little and gets more uncomfortable the longer I stay up on my feet.  I thought if I took it easy for awhile the swelling would go down but it hasn't.  I'm getting worried now.  It's like a balloon.down there and gets larger the more I am up on my feet.  I don't feel anything but the knot, or balloon, if that's what you want to call it.  

I had my last period over 20 years ago.  Went through menopause earlier.  I'm a widow, so I'm not engaging in sexual relations.  I don't know what is wrong, but something surely is.  

Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks, donna
