I am almost 56 years old & in menopause with all the full-fledged effects that go along with it. I have noticed that to the left of my vaginal opening (the upper part of the clitoral wall) that there is a little hard (white in color) bump & above that is very dark blood spots. What could this be & should I see a doctor?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The ‘white hard bump’ and the ‘dark blood spot’ that you describe cannot be commented upon without examination. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination and further evaluation to identify the lesions that you describe along with looking for the underlying cause for them. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated (by examination and test results). Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
