Pain Lumps on Vulva

Hi I am a 52 year old who had a hysterectomy in 1999.  I am divorced and have not been sexually active for 2 years.  Now that that is out of the way, here is my problem/question:   About 4 weeks ago I developed a large painful lump on the peineum just to the left of the vaginal opening.  Thinking that it was an abscess  I started using sitz baths, result of that was now I have like 8 more of the large painful lumps.  They are on the Mons Pubis, Labia Majora and perineum.  They are not abscesses as they have never developed a head nor drained at all.  My concern is that my sister had Vulvar Cancer in 2000.  Can this be a symptom of that? Especially with so many  of the popping up in such a short period of time?  They are all on the left side and now the left lymph node is swollen and painful, and the mons pubis also seems swollen, needless to say of course the left labia is 3 x the size of the right.  I have just moved and am having trouble finding a gyno so any ideas would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks
