Hi everybody, I just found out 2 days ago that there is a pimple like lump near the opening of my vagina, it's almost between the vagina and the anus which lies a little bit to the right side. It's about half a cm, No redness (just skin color) feels hard, and it hurts only a little when i press it down, does anybody know what kind of lump this is? could it be cancer? I will go to dr, however i just want to know if any knows about this, so i dont have to go to the Dr. if it's gonna be disappeared....please let me know , i'm so worry!

I doubt it's cancer. It could just be a pimple. Tough for us to say. You'll have to wait until you go to the doctor to know for sure.

the lump could very well be a cyst. I get them and they run in my family. Cyst may turn into cancer but very unlikly.

It's probably nothing...
@plz101

That, with best case (and most likely case) senerio is just a urinary tract infection. I had one 2 years ago, and your symptoms match mine. I, however, wasn't sexually active, so drink cranberry juice (LOADS of it, even if you don't like it, it helps a lot) and wait another week. Don't engage in any sex (God, I sound like my teacher) or activities. None. And if, in a week, it hasn't helped even a little bit, you NEED a doctor.

If it does work, feel safe to go to the doctor, say what you feel and he'll give you a prescription that'll make it clear up in a week or so.

Pimple/Cyst near vaginal area
I also have a similar issue with a pimple/cyst on the right side between my vagina and anus! It's been there for 10 days! The size is roughly size of a large cherry! The first day I noticed it I tried to pop it and I actually got out some puss like white/ cream colored! Stayed big and skin colored till today and I tried again to pop it and I got yellowish puss and light colored blood come out! Not too much!! Still lumpy but feels like its slowly shrinking! Will this ever go away or will more crap come out? Getting worried

Sebaceous cysts
It is not uncommon for women to fear that these bumps or lumps under the skin may be genital herpes. The fact is that genital herpes creates a completely different kind of sore -- a blister-type sore that eventually becomes crusty -- not just a bump or lump under the skin. Very often, after careful inspection by a qualified health care professional, these under-the-skin bumps and lumps are found to be sebaceous cysts which are sometimes called epidermal cysts.

Although sebaceous cysts are usually found on the face, neck, and trunk, they also many times occur in the vaginal area or other parts of the genitalia of both women and men.

Sebaceous cysts are usually painless, slow-growing small bumps or lumps that move freely under the skin. It's important not to touch or try to remove the substance inside to prevent tenderness, swelling, and infection of a sebaceous cyst.
What is a sebaceous cyst?
A sebaceous cyst is a closed sac occurring just under the skin which contains a "pasty" or "cheesy" looking substance. A foul odor is also often present in the substance called keratin which fills sebaceous cysts. Keratin is a protein that creates the sac of cells called sebaceous cysts. The bumps or lumps you can feel under your skin are actually the sac of cells.
What causes sebaceous cysts?
Sebaceous cysts are often the result of swollen hair follicles, or skin trauma.
What are the symptoms of sebaceous cysts?
Small lumps or bumps that occur just under the skin of the vagina, genitalia, breast, abdomen, face, neck, or elsewhere on the body are the most common symptom of sebaceous cysts.
Occasionally infections may occur. Signs or symptoms that may indicate infection of sebaceous cysts include:

redness

tenderness

increased temperature of the skin over the bumps or lumps

greyish white, cheesy, foul smelling material draining from the bump or lump
How are sebaceous cysts diagnosed ?
Sebaceous cysts are usually easily diagnosed by their appearance to the trained eye. In some cases, a biopsy may be necessary to rule out other conditions with a similar appearance.
Treatments for sebaceous cysts
Sebaceous cysts most often disapear on their own and are not dangerous. Occasionally, they may become inflamed and tender. Sometimes sebaceous cysts grow large that they may interfere with your everyday life. When this happens, surgical removal in your health care provider's office may be necessary. Small inflamed cysts can often be treated by injection of steroid medications or with antibiotics.
Complications of sebaceous cysts
Sebaceous cysts may occasionally become infected and form into painful abscesses. It is important when sebaceous cysts are surgically removed that the entire sac is excised to help prevent a recurrence. However, it's important to note that sebaceous cyst recurrence in not unusual.
Remember to consult your health care provider anytime you notice any type of growth, bump, or lump on your body. Although sebaceous cysts are not dangerous, your doctor should examine you to ensure that skin cancer is not present.

I have been getting various under the skin lumps around the outside of my vagina for about a year now. Sometimes they itch, sometimes they're very tender, and sometimes they get quite large, but they always leave eventually. Earlier today I noticed blood in that area and saw that I have a purplish bruise about the size of a pea with an opening where blood had come out. I felt around and was not surprised to find a small lump underneath. I have experienced a little bleeding in the past but never any bruises! Sad I wish they would go away. I've never even had sex before and I experience this, it makes me afraid to try and worried it would gross out my future significance other if it ever gets bad like this when I'm with him Sad
