Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

The most common cause of lump in the vaginal area could be:
1. Bartholin's Cyst - Is located midway of the labia, and protrudes into the vagina.It can be caused by an infection, inflammation, or physical blockage.
2. Infected hair follicles - can form small absesses, which can cause a small swelling, but they are associated with redness and throbbing pain.
Proper diagnosis requires a proper physical examination of the swelling in question. You might consult a gynaecologist who can examine and then decide on the appropriate treatment.
Take care!
