I am a 21 yr old female and have two small bumps on the opening of my urethra (side by side) which are the same color as the surrounding skin, but unlike everything else I have read, they do not itch, there is no puss/blood and they are somewhat sensitive when I touch them (I can't tell if it is just because it is a sensitive area of the body or specifically the bumps). They are slightly stiff and have no change in texture. I am very worried that this may be HPV but I am too nervous to wait the two weeks for my gyno aptmt for answers. Could this possibly be something less invasive? I don't sleep around but I have had sex so it is technically a possibility. PLease help!
Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.
I honestly do not think that what you are describing here will amount to anything serious. They could be Bartholin cysts. I am glad that you will be seeing a gyno but in the meantime relax, you will be fine.
