Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the ‘lump’ that you describe without examining it closely. The possibility of hemorrhoids, vaginal mucosa or skin tag cannot be ruled out. Avoid self manipulation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination. Get started on treatment as appropriate. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment. Drink plenty of water.
Take care.

Another possibility is folliculitis, pulled hair follicle.
