Did you ever get the answer? Because that seems really similar to what has happened to me...and how (if I can) would you pop it? Because the idea of popping something near my vagina scared me plus it really hurts!

You have nothing to worry about. A week ago I started off with one of these and then I had two in the same place. These are not an STD because it would either be Warts, and both the partners would have it. My mum works as a Theatre Nurse in a hospital and she has to surgically remove these "lumps" every so often. These, in actual fact, are a sebaceous cyst. These mainly occur within puberty and may be due to sweat or uncomfortable clothing. Mine disappeared after a while although they got very swollen. You can reduce the size of these cysts by "draining" them, to do this you apply a warm wet cloth. They are completely normal and usually get ignored. However, if you are extremely worried I would advise you to go to your doctor and ask for their advice. They usually provide you with antibiotics which is useless as if it is not infected then these tablets will do nothing. They may also surgically remove these lumps, again this is useless as these are completely normal cysts and will only appear again within a few months or years. They are only advised to remove the lumps if they are of annoyance to your everyday life and are extremely painful.

I have the same  painful lump as you discribed here but the size of a tombully (large sized marble) I went to the Dr. and as you said the Dr. prescribed Anti-Biotics and it seems to do nothing for my problem but it did help my massive spider bite.lol. This lump has been with me 11 days now and is still as painful as the first day I found it and has not drained at all. Dr. appointment on next Monday. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed. Thank you for the write  up on this it did help reduce the panic of not knowing what was going on.
Thanks again,

Yep I have one right next to my vagina at the cease so painful. My doctor said it is a boil, most likely from an ingrown hair folical. Hot compress work but hard when your working, he recommended 'draw salve' it help pull the infection out so it drains.that seems to be helping, also using a lidocaine gel for pain, keeping it clean, but very painful and difficult to urinate and walk.

I'm not sure if what I was getting is what the rest of you are describing, but, I found a "cure" to my very, very painful, occasional bumps, cysts, whatever you want to call them.  I found that I would get them after sex, or even after manual stimulation.  I hit the health food store, and got some oil of clove and mixed just a couple of drops in  with some olive oil.  I spread it on, even before a bump showed up.  Spread it on after a night of sex or manual stimulation, I haven't had one of those dreaded bumps in several months.  (thank goodness!).

Use the eseential oils VERY sparingly.  Just a couple of drops in some olive oil, otherwise, it will BURN like heck.  Another oil I tried was "purification" oil.  It's a combination of Citronella, rosemary, lavandin, and lemongrass.

So, my story is....get to the bump before it gets to you.  LOL.  Hope this helps

Thanks! I was just worried, I have ONE bump and me and my partner are completely free of STDs and what not. I was worried because it hurts a little but nothing that really gets in the way. I will wait a bit, going and paying for the doctors on a college budget is not really helpful!

I had this as well 2 years ago when I was just reaching puberty, it killed when I sat and crossed my legs, pinky and painful ...
I just kept keeping it clean, like using loaaaads of soap on it and just being gentle to it... it goes away quicker keeping it clean

mostly these worries are normal hormone changes your body goes thru, zits is wat most of them sound like. i have had them also, especially after i started having kids. normally they will go away on their own, but if it really bothers you, go to a doctor. also they could be staph infections, very common in pregnant women, women who are nursing, and newborns. i've had these too; at 4 months old and once after i had both of my children. those are fairly simple to diagnose, they are big lumps, red, very sore, and *****. yes it sounds a lot like a zit, but when you pop them, they smell very bad and unlike a zit they look like they start to heal over but you end up squeezing out more puss many times after it looks like its healing. if you think you have a staph infection, you really need anti-biotic! other than that info, rubbing alcohol applied with a cotton ball a few times a day helps to get rid of the zit-like bumps. i hope i helped!

hey i think its just from shaving. if you dont use good shaving cream and a new razor then it can really irritate the area you are shaving. the lumps are probably from ingrown hairs. which isnt fun. also you should take care of your razor dont let it get rusty or dull because that can pull on your hairs and cut the hairs the wrong way. also keep in mind that soaps you use to wash your body may not be good for your skin down there. dont use any perfumed stuff. there are certain soaps made for down there, but might be expensive.

You should not be embarrassed if you have a yeast infection. All women will get a yeast infection at least once in their life time. The only thing you should be embarrassed about is living with a yeast infection and it's symptoms for 2years! Not being rude, but you need to get rid of it and doctors have seen way worse and won't judge you for it. You can even try To get rid of it naturally, google it, or just buy the treatment at the drug store..but if I were you I would seek medical advise. How do you know it's a yeast infection for sure?

it could be a cyst, go to your doctor and let them have a look at it, and then they can tell you if you can have an operation to remove it

If you have a largish lump under the skin on one or both sides of the vagina it is probably a bartholin cyst. This happens when the lubricating fluid produced by the glands gets backed up. Usually these are harmless and go away on their own. if you have a fever or other more extreme symptoms though go see your doctor.

Hi, I am just wondering if anyone could help me??? I have recently found a lump on my vagina at the bottom but towards the side of my lips on the left side. However the inside area of my lips is very tender and sore, and feels like sharp mini shooting pains too. But I have also notice white thick discharge every time I check my vagina when going toilet. As well as this I have felt tiny lumps on the inside of my vagina when washing near the curvex area. But even though I have thick white discharge around my clitorus tends to be very dry but extra painful and feels like it burns when I wee. What can all this mean??? As I am single and not had sex for 2years at least and have had std checks about a year ago. However I tend to masturbate regularly can anyone help ???? I'm to scared and shy to go doctors???? Xxxx

I have a bumps near my vagina entrance, it does not hurt but gets itchy when I wipre myself each time I go to the bathroom.  It happens to me everytime I have inflammation.  Before the  bump get noticeable It always burn and I try to drink as much water as I can.  Then the next day, it does not burn when I go to pee but I do feel the bump more.  I just want to know if someone did get that before and what has been done to cure it.  Actually I am putting Vagisil cream on it to calm the itchiness and usually its cure after 3-4 days, no bumps.  This time I am on my 3rd day and I can still feel it. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.

hello ladies. i've been reading all the comments above and sadly i'm in the same boat :( i have a lump, the same lump i had a few years ago that was diagnosed as a cyst. i had to undergo minor surgery to get it cut and was placed on anti biotics for a few weeks, or days....i can't remember lol. but hey, if its a cyst its nothing to be frightened about. i mean i was frightened at first, but my doctor made to feel comfortable alltho he was a male and the cyst was like in my passage. it was VERY painful, i walked funny couldnt sit down properly and was more frightened to tell my mom than go by the doc! but i had to. And just as i feared they jumped to conclusions and blamed me having sex and bla bla bla. i am a woman dammit! neways straying from the topic.....yes so here i am with this stupid lump again and i looked it up it is mainly caused by an infection or blocked up glands that cause them to become swollen and painful. others are caused by tumors, developing embryos etc. So i hope you ladies are okay now because i know what inconvenience this is! i hope i get thru this one okay too. :)

I have a pea sized (maybe a bit bigger) lump under the skin between two veins, it beside the clitorous and the lips, it has just shown up and I'm worried it may be something worse as I am sexually active, I came to the conclusion that I was suffering from cystitis as i had the bladder symptoms, now because of the lump I'm affriad it is alot worse, or am could it just be two things wrong rather than one big problem?

I have expirenced these and have one once a year I think its the oils clogging the drainage crap and my doctor told me not to sneeze them because you can cause the plug to go deeper into the skin I make sure I was teal good done there and then I put a dab of rubbing alchole it went from really noticeable to not at all in 2 days I know its scary to have anything down there because of the stigma attached with stds a d stuff but alot of extra stuff happens down there not sex related

Hi, I'm 12 and I have the exact same thing. Nothing to be scared of, apparently. I told my mom and she said that had gotten a few of those over the course of her lifetime, but in different places, for example, on the right and left side of the clitoris. I asked her if it was cancer, and she said certainly not. Since mosquitoes are all over the place, she thought it was either a mosquito bite or a cyst. After going on this website, she declared that it was a cyst. Yours is probably just a cyst too! Also, you should tell your mom about it. That really helped me.

I have a bump type thing right now too except I have had it for 4 days now, and its the size of a quarter (atleast) and hard as a rock. Its located like right where my thigh/hip meets my pelvis so its in a very easily irritated place (by jeans and such). I do shave, but I haven't for a bit because I'm currently single. Only had sex with one person and he was a virgin as well so I don't think its and sti or anything... but it hurts really bad, I've tried wearing looser or no underwear and loose pants so it wouldn't be irritated and I just don't know what it is.

I definitely have had this twice. I went to the Doctor, told me it was a small cyst. A buildup of bacteria. Told me to leave it alone. I have washing my "area" twice a day with Summer's Eve wash and its been gradually clearing away:) I hope it works for everyone else.

It's probably a Bartholin's  cyst (when a Bartholin's gland is blocked, causing a fluid-filled cyst to develop). They can be very painful and as some of you say,they come and go.
I had one many years ago and I had become feverish and started vomitting before a doctor was called. He prescribed a course of antibiotics and the cyst drained   within a few days of the most foul smelling pus.
The doctor asked me to tell him the next time it filled and he arranged an immediate hospital visit to have it lanced.
I had a general anesthetic and the walls of the cyst were stitched open so the cyst could no longer form. I have never had any further problems.

alright guys I have a bump a lot like the one everyone is describing and I went to the doctor (I would encourage you all to do so too; it's really not awkward at all if you ask for a woman). I am 14 years old and have never even had my first kiss, so I knew it wasn't an STD. It turns out it's an infection such as an ingrown hair  or something of that sort. As gross as it is, it is a ball of puss basically under the skin that should come to the surface (looking almost like a pimple) at some point soon. You can get them anywhere in your body, just on your vagina is more uncomfortable for obvious reasons. She prescribed me antibiotics to take twice a day for ten days and said it should come to the surface and drain in 4 or 5. I also should take a hot washcloth to the bump (or a hot bath) twice a day. If it doesn't get better (she believes it will) then I will call her and she will direct me to a specialist that will basically pop it. I hope this helps and I wish you all luck!!! Remember it's nothing to worry about and take ibuprofen if it hurts or stings!

Hello ladies well I've been getting these since I was 13 at least once a month so I know that it ***** well I actually have one rigt now that is right were my underwear is so that ***** but hot compresses help a lot and if any of you are familiar with the aloe plant what you can do is cut of a piece take of the skin and you're hyping to be left with a sticky goo, put that into the microwave for about 20 seconds it heats up really fast. You're gunna put that right on top of the pimple or whatever you wanna call it as hot as you can take it and put a hot towel over that. You should see shrinkage una few hours . Hope that helps somebody :)

I also have a bump right above my vagina it hurts when I apply pressure. I take really hot baths/showers and yesterday in the shower it popped I didn't provoke it it did it on it's own. Now today it just is continuing to drain I'm thoroughly disgusted. I'm scared it will become infected.

Those are normal bumps. a lot of women have them. They are cysts. They will come and go. You may feel them in one place one time, then in another place another time. As far a your period being late, you probably ovulated later. Is there anything that put you through stress a couple of weeks ago? There is a book called, Taking Charge of Your Fertility that would benefit any woman who is menstruating. It is not just about getting pregnant, but also how to stay from being pregnant and vaginal health overall. You would be able to tell if you have an infection, and if you did get pregnant, you would know before a pregnancy test could tell you. There are signs that your body gives you to tell you when you are fertile and when you are not. But I like the overall health of the vagina best. It tells you all sorts of things. I would recommend getting this book. Everyone has a certain number of days from the time they ovulate to the time they have their period. It is the same number of days all the time. What can change is when you ovulate. That will change when you have your period. I hope this helped you and put you at piece of mind. I would still highly recommend that book.

Could it possible be a hernia? My daughter was born with one in her stomach when she would laugh the bump or ball would stick out. The doc said she would have to do situps to strengthen her muscles in her stomach. Once they got stronger the ball would go away.

Im not exactly qualified but don't panic, i think just google it, it may be a cyst and disappear within a matter of weeks or it may just be natural, if it gets any worse talk to your mum or someone that can help, i had a cyst under the skin by my vagina, i told my mum and it made it so much easier as she knew what i was talking about and could help. Nobody is going to force you to go to the doctor about it but if you're worried tell some one or do more research of your own.

I'm 16, and like some other people. I had a bump by the left side of my vagina. But the thing is, first of all, I have a kind of deep stretch mark between my leg and vagina, and it's kind of next to that. And the bit of space between the bump and stretch mark is a bit swollen, with lines like it may have almost bled. That was about week ago though. Now the bump's a little smaller, and that and the swollen area has gotten a bit purple for some reason. Does anyone know if I should go to the doctor? Or will this maybe go away if I just leave it? (The reason I left it for a week was because I was hoping it would go away)

Also, like other people have said, it's kind of sore. Though it's gotten less sore than when I first got it. And also, the stretch mark got less deeper when I got it. Probably 'cause if the swelling.

Ok, I am 13 years old and not sexually active at all, I'm a virgin and i plan to be one for a while. However, today in class I was sitting in my chair and there was a part of my vagina that was very sore. It wasn't cramps because it felt like it was on the skin. After I came home I checked it out and there is a quarter- sized red lump on the underneath of my vagina near the pubic line on my skin. Everything I researched said herpes but I'm not sexually active, or razor bumps but I've never shaved my lady parts before and it couldn't be a pimple because I tried to pop it and it was really painful and wouldn't budge. I am seriously scared.. S.O.S.

I have a lump in my private area, just on the bone of the right side. It is very painful and distracts my walking or sitting. I just noticed the lump now due to the increase of the pain in that area since today. I also started my period yesterday and been having heavy bleeding since then. I have quite a lot of personal problems at the moment and have been stressing quite a lot since around a week ago. Is there anything I need to worry about? Should I check the problem with the doctor or leave it for now?

Mine is more suspectable to come if
1 ) Sexually aroused/ wet down there
2 ) Before my period

I got my first one when I was 13 or 14, hurt like hell I didn't know what to do. Another time it developed right before I had to go to a school trip, it felt like a basketball in my vagina, so freeking painful, the pain happened in stages. I found that after the most painful stage it would pop and there would be blood and pus. Such a ******* relief, imagine having to lay down in only one position and walking like you have a **** up ur ***. It popped like two days before the trip, amen. But from that day I sworeeeee I wouldn't subject myself to that pain again. Prevention is key for me, I wet cotton wool/tissue with warm water, pour dettol antiseptic liquid{brown} over the top and hold it on the suspect area before it develops and it never does develop. One time I did slip up and didn't bother with dettol even though I felt it coming, boy did regret it. But now I get it under my armpit too sigh. I don't know whether its this lymph node thing , a normal cyst or Hidradenitis Suppurativa

go to the Dr and get it checked out. I am 52 years old and just spent 12 days in the hospital and 5 of those bumps . I thought they would go away too but they did not. at first a dr thought that I had a spider bite. I had 1 in the lip of my vagina 1 on my inner thigh 1 at the clitoris area and 2 between my vagina and anal opening my started as a small red bump and the grew into the size of a marble and very hard and sore  all I could do is lay in bed. When 2 started to open and drain they rushed me to the hospital thinking I was going to die if the infection got into my blood stream. I was so worried and scared. It was nothing to mess around with. They had to cut them open and clean them out like a burn patient and cut away dead skin and then stuff with gauze till the healed from the inside out. The cyst was deep and the infection was inside the layers of my skin. It was painful. This happened in aug. 2013 I am now all better

Check out hidradenitis suppurativa which is also called acne inversa.   The areas everyone is describing are very common areas to get them.  They are cyst like lesions which can be anywhere from pea size to baseball size.  They can be super painful to the point that some people have taken narcotics for the pain.  I've found hormonal changes do make them worse.  Most general doctors and gynecologists fail to recognize it since it is considered a rare disease.  I don't think it is that rare due to the fact many people never tell their doctors due to embarrassment.  A dermatologist is the one most likely to diagnose it.  Usually hot compresses / baths will help speed it along to drain.  But often they don't drain but just shrink on their own and totally disappear after a few weeks.  But it is a recurring condition so often they will develop again in the same general area.
