maybe it was a cyst? I always heard that its best to not mess with them and see the dr. I know I am in that boat right now... just waiting impatiently for my appt. LOL
Good Luck and I hope you get some answers!
Thank you. I'm definitely nervous about it. I have a doctors appointment on Monday. Just a regular check up. I'm definitely nervous about it all. I don't know if I'm going to end up telling the doctor.
I think you should tell your doctor, just for peace of mind. Stuff like herpes won't last that long, so I don't think you should worry about it being anything like that. Maybe it's a boil that isn't draining? I bet your doctor could figure out how to make it go away :)
I have what sounds like the same thing. I went to the GYN on Monday. Mine is a sebacous cyst. I felt irritation down there, and I sat in a sitz bath on Sunday. Monday morning, it drained blood and clear fluid - then it felt better, but was still there, but much smaller. I was able to get in to have it looked at. She said it may never go completly away (yuk), but I guess as long as it feels OK, then I won't worry. At this time - 3 days later, I don't really notice it's there, unless I go prodding aroud.
Hope this helps - you should still get it looked at, but it's probably nothing but a cyst. Also - soaking and warm washcloths will help if it's sore.
this has all been helpful and reassuring to me...thanks for the input...i too will also get to a doctor to be sure.
I have the exact same thing, it is almost like I wrote this myself. The only difference is that I tried to pop it and nothing happened. Does it feel like a bb from a gun or something. or a hard pea. I am afraid to to the doctor, I am afriad that its cancer.
i had something like that it eventually went away.. was horribly nervous.. but was just a lil cyst like what you guys are discribing best to get it checked out tho.. seriously better safe then sorry if it is cancer .. the sooner u find out the better.. so dont' post-pone it.. not saying it is but just health wise better get it checked..

I have a small lump about the size of a pea on the top left side of my vagina. it is round and underneath the skin, it has a bit of a whiteish colour to it and close to the top it gets a darker colour almost like an ingrown hair maybe under the skin? I do shave, so im wondering could this be an ingrown hair.. I tried squeezing it but no luck. Just wondering if this could be some sort of cancer or STD, I am not sexually active and never have been ive just been felt down there. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated!
ok so im not sexually active at all and i have a little ball on the right side of my vaginal lip it doesnt hurt or irritate me and it's not filled with anything either, the only thing is i have the same thing on my right pinky finger.
ok so i have this pea size lump on the left lip of my vagina. it only hurts when i press on it. i tried to pop it thinking it may be a zit or an ingrown hair but it just hurt really bad nothing came out. its the same color as the rest of the skin around it and you can barely notice it if you are looking. i found it yesterday idk how long its been there. i looked up sebaceous cysts but i'm not sure thats what it is.
Well I have the same thing on my right side its like a small hard pea I went to the doctor over about 3 years ago that's how long I have had it he said that it was just a cyst nothing to freak over he said that I could use some stuff over the counter if it got to me or he could just remove it him self I've had it for so long now its just like a part of me I even forget about a lot of time but u still need to go get it looked at hope this helped
this has happened to me a couple times, usually it goes away, i pop it and gradually it goes away. however, this time it's gotten a bit bigger, like a pea and i tried to pop it but nothing happened, just some blood. i think i'm going to wait a while before i do anything about it. i'm still very nervous though, i don't know why they happen.
a few days ago I noticed a fairly large lump on the left lip of my vagina. As the days have gone by it seems to be getting more and more irritated as well as uncomfortable. Sitting, walking and wiping is beginning to become VERY uncomfortable. So I took a sterilized needle to it and the first puncture a very little bit of blood & what I think is pus came out of it. I could no longer squeeze anymore out so I poked another hole and nothing but blood came out. But it's very nerve racking and even though it's a GYN's job to help.. I'm not comfortable going in there for this. Could someone please help me.. Any ideas on how to bring it to a head so I can pop it??
OKAY so i had this bump on the left side of my vagina lips & it started getting larger & harder but nothing was coming out it was just very swollen & hard for a couple of days i went to the EMERGENCY ROOM today 6/15/2011 cause I couldnt sit down anymore & the doc cut it open and drained it i was told it was a VAGINAL ABSCESS that could have came from shaving TRUTH be told it doesnt hurt anymore & the swelling went down a LIL bit but it's still there (YUK) I have too go back to the doctor in 2days for a wound check i hope the swelling is gone (STAY TUNE U GUYS)
I know this is old, but what did the doctor say?
I have the same thing looking for answers I am young and a virgin so I know it's not a sexually transmitted disease. It does not cause me any discomfort but it just irritates because I shave down there. I just want it to go away. What is a sitz bath? I'm very uncomfortable going to the sector the anything. Literally though it's like I write these myself.mine is also on the top left side.
how long it takes to go away? is it safe to have it for years?
I know this is old but i to have a lump on the inside bottom part of my vagina lip (labia) ive had it for a while now.Its the color of my skin its almost as if i can move it, sometimes i forget its there cause it never bothers me even during intercourse. Im 27 with 2 kids. When i remember it being there it worries me! Am i panicking for no reason?? Should i find a OBGYN ASAP. Thanks for listening any answers ill consider Please Help THANKS IN ADVANCE
Best get it checked out as i have recently found out that if it gets serious it can lead to a tumor. so get it seen to so that it can get treated before it gets to that stage.
Bartholin's Cyst and Abscess
Check this website out ladies I promise this is exactly what all of you have very common. Can be cause from long car rides, sitting long period of times, tight clothing ect ect there are two types cyst or abscess.
Common in woman 20-30 can accur in younger woman. You do not have to be sexually active at all it's just a block glan..... Can be pea size OR bigger they vary in sizes. Nothing no to be embarrassed able it at all!!
Cysts are harmless can go away by themselves or..... stay for long period of times and be removed if you choose to do so.
Abscess (which is what I have) can be painful / irritated / itchy / red. These can be left alone as well either it will pop / drain itself (although can make you EXTREMELY sick because it's a infection in you glan in your libia) it is recommended to go to doctor for super quick look easy treatment either with antibiotics or quick in office procedure. It does appear a few of you have popped it yourself and has been fine but it will return with out antibiotics.......
That website I posted has all the small tidbits you need to put your mind at ease. Symptoms/ causes/ treatments/ ect.
