Painful lump

I have a lump inside of my labia majora and it's very painful but it isn't visible.(i am 14) its painful to sit and walk. I have tried sitting in a warm bath and the pain went away but the next morning it came back worse. Should i be worried? What could it be and how can i get rid of it? Anything besides visiting a doctor, i'm not very comfortable doing that.

It is likely a little infected cyst.  I know it's not something you want to talk about or have examined, but maybe it will help to be able to describe it to your mom like this:  I think I might have an infected cyst or hair follicle or something and it's really hurting me in a really bad place!  These things happen.  Boys have embarrassing things too, not just girls.

Hi there.  Honestly, this is an instance in which you really DO need to see a doctor.  There is nothing to be uncomfortable with---  really.  Doctors examine this stuff all day long!  Are you sexually active?
