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?
