I noticed this morining that I have a very sore lump. It just next to my vaginal opening. It is kind of right on top of the bone that runs down there. I am not sure what it is or if I should go see my doctor. I am only 18 years old and know nothing about this.... Thanks for any help you can give me
Hello there...I hope you are feeling okay these days - are you still having problems with the lump?
I was wondering if it could possibly be an enlarged skene gland. My sister has had a re-occurance of an enlarded gland and has to have it lanced from time to time.
I've copied and pasted some info in regards to this gland:
a skene's gland is on each side of the urethral opening. It is normally neither seen nor felt, although close inspection will reveal the pinpoint openings of these periurethral glands.
When infected, the skene's gland will become enlarged and tender.
A simple incision and drainage of the gland will generally result in complete resolution. Topical anesthetic (20% benzocaine, or "hurricaine") can be applied to the cyst with a cotton-tipped applicator and allowed to sit for 3-4 minutes. A single stab wound by a scalpel opens the abscess and allows for drainage of the pus.
I hope you find this to be useful!
