I discovered a hard bump, about the size of a pea inside the outer edge of my vaginal lip. It is not discolored or painful. Is this something to be worried about? Should I talk to my gynocologyst about this? Any help is appriciated.

A small, hard lump found on vulva which is generally painless, is probably, a sebaceous cyst.
Sebaceous cyst results from a blocked sebaceous gland (skin oil glands), and is very common appearance in woman's external genitals, major and minor lips.
Sebaceous cysts require no treatment unless they cause discomfort.
It may disappear on its own, or it can remain in the same place at the same size without causing any problems.
They occur more frequently in women practicing Brazilian waxing.

Best wishes!

Yea I've had a couple and they appear like once a month or so. Do they go away on their own? Somttimes it is kind of embarassing. I just got tested in early May and I came out clean, so when it popped up i was scared.
