about a week ago i noticed that it hurt to wipe after urinating, but it does not hurt to pee. The area to the left of the urethral opening was swollen and hard and was sore. I went to my gyno for my yearly on 8/3/07 and he said it looked fine but after a couple of hours later a small lump appeared again. Am I going crazy or was he not looking not looking in the right place. If I can see the lump and so can my husband why couldnt he

You should go again, and try again to show it to the gyno. Sorry, that's all I can suggest.

I had the same exact thing in the exact same spot. It's a cyst and you will have to get it surgically drained unless it breaks by itself. If it's what you have, be forewarned, it is extremely painful.

i had the same problem for 3 wks but gyno suggested to see urologist. after drinking cranberry juice 1 day (more if you need to), it burst on its own (blood and other liquids, scary at first and sharp pains but ok after 1 hour, somewhat fully drained). if not, i woulda been under the knife to drain it. i feel better now and bursting was a better case scenario. i obtained antibiotics for UTI and will see urologist for more details or any more treatment.

same problem...
I am also having same problem, I thought I had a uti as it was hurtin when I peed a little at the end and hurt to wipe, I also has blood in my wee but right side of vagina towards the back waas soo swollen an painful to touch, even when I walk. I got antibiotics for the infection but the lump is still there, I've now started bleedin 2 wks early of my period. The lump isn't visible as the swelling has gone down but I can feel a hard lump when I touch it, it seems quite under the surface though.

Hi, we'll after my infection went but the lump stayed I went back doctors an they said it was more than likely a swollen gland. I left it a couple weeks and its now gone! Since then I've had had another uti with same problem, lump wasn't as big but definitely swollen again on one side, but again after treatments it's gone... Hope this helps? Also blood in wee could mean problem with kidneys so go doctors right away, in my case my kidneys were fine, I think with the pressure an infection in bladder caused me a bit of blood but again went once treated.
