Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the lesion that you describe without examining it. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest to have a thorough examination and further assessment to look for the cause. Get started on treatment as indicated (by examination and investigation results).
Take care.
