So I'm a teenage girl and I around two months ago I discovered a small small lump between my vag lip (outer) and thigh. It stayed the same for a while and has recently grown to around the size of a raspberry. It's hard and doesn't hurt; I haven't experienced any problems other than this (no other signs and symptoms).

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This is possibly an enlarged lymph node.Yes.They can be enlarged without any apparent reasons and can remain painless.Do you have a poor genital hygiene? That also can be a reason.Otherwise,a cyst can be a possibility.However,for an opinion,you need to be examined and thus,please meet your doctor if the swelling persists.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
