Hi, my question is not for certain. I think i have a swollen gland on that is only on my right side in the genital region, i just noticed it, i dont know why it would be swollen (if it even is), why it would only be on my right side, what it could mean. I havent been sick in well over a year, I feel healthy, should i be concerned?

I can’t be sure if you really have a “swollen gland” on the outer genitals without an examination (inspection). If you think that you have something unusual that looks to you like a “swollen gland” you may want to consult your gynecologist or a dermatovenerologist to confirm or exclude your suspicions.
