Unfortunately, since I am unable to examine patients who participate in this forum, I really cannot offer a specific diagnosis, or medical recommendations, based only upon descriptions such as yours.

Most lumps and bumps in this area (particularly in premenopausal women) will turn out to be benign (i.e., non-cancerous). However, cancers do sometimes occur in this area. Therefore, you should ask your Gynecologist to evaluate this lump.

I have a bump right below my vagina and it's not too big but it's noticeable to me. I don't know how log it has been there, but I have just noticed it today. The lump is hard, but does not hurt and isn't discolored. Please reply. I'm only sixteen and I'm very scared it could be something bad like cancer.
