Common Questions and Answers about Lump in vulva area

lump

even if it's not painful, you should have it checked by your doc just to be sure
I've had a small cyst in my labia minora and sex of any kind only makes it worse (the friction). In addition to abstinence, try sitting in a sitz bath for 20 minutes 3-4/day and applying warm compresses to the area. That may shrink it if it's a cyst. Wear cotton underwear. Don't touch it to keep assessing its size--you'll just aggravate it. Take ibuprofen. I agree with the other poster--it's probably just a cyst, so call your GYN on Monday.

A couple of months ago while shaving down below I noticed that I have this black Mark which is about under an inch in size on the inner vulva area. All surrounding skin is pink, this just looks very odd i have never noticed this before. It is not raised it is flat but it's a weird shape with jagged edges.

On the 18th I had noticed a lump in the lymph node in my right groin. I'm not sure how long it had been there. It didn't hurt and it was about 1cm in size. The following week my doctor sent me for blood work and checked for diabetes, urine sample, STD's etc. and that came back normal as well. Last night I went back to the doctors and showed him the lump. (I figured that it was caused by an infection, but since the bloodwork came back normal...
I have discovered a pea size lump/bump located between my left underarm and left breast. I had a mammogram two months ago, but this area was not in the area that is commonly scanned. There are not other lumps around it, and it does not seem to be a swollen hair follicle. Is it ridiculous to be concerned about it? Could it be breast cancer in this area?
I'm in my mid 20s. Yesterday I found a lump on my upper right vulva: under pubic hair, about 1cm diameter. It's a little more pinkish and reddish than the surrounding skin. I can see skin peeling off he surface of the lump, but not seriously peeling. The lump is not hard and hurts a little when I press it. Most of the time, I feel ok.
Sometime yesterday, noticed that I have developed a lump that's about the size of a penny, in kind of the area just outside of my ******* (lovely right!! Sorry about this folks). It is hard to the touch, doesn't really move around, and very very tender (especially when touched or pressed upon, so I'm trying to sleep on my side). Checked it out with a mirror, and it really doesn't look like much from the outside...the lump is noticeable but it's def.
For just over a month now, I have experianced a sharp (not too severe but there nonetheless) throbbing pain in my vulvur area. My vulva is red, slightly swollen and tender where the pain occurs and the pain is in one specific area only, not quite at the vaginal entrence, just below it. The pain varies day to day but is there consently and I'm finding this extremely irritating and distressing.
I explained to them though that this is like in the pubic area almost where my leg meets the pubic area but on the actual pubic area. It does give quite a bit of discomfort when I push on it. Has anyone had anything like this?
It isn’t very subtle. There will be a round tender 'lump' in one of the vaginal lips, near the opening of the vagina, use a mirror and you will see it. Cysts that get infected can become very painful. Go to a gynecologist or your health care provider and let that person determine if it is infected. Treatment: The treatment really depends on several things; the size of the cyst, how painful it is, if it is infected and how your health care provider chooses to treat them.
I am a female who is not sexually active (for many years) I currently have a large cyst low in my pubic area that must be ready to explode any time. I only wish it would. It is very hot and tender to the touch. Also painful to walk. Sometimes I need to go to the bathroom and cry. Yes, it hurts that bad. I'm too embarassed to go to the doctor. About 2 weeks ago I had the first one which was about the same size, maybe a little smaller. I am freaking out. What can I do to get some releif?

I was reading all the post and seen that a warm cloth would help with the pain of the lump in my bikini area. As I read on further I decided to try the warm cloth, i added epson salts to the water and used the wash cloth as a compress. After I had finished reading the other post, I decided that I had held this long enough, when I took the cloth from the lump I noticed that there was a lot of brown puss coming from the lump.

Hello, I am no medical person nor an expert but from own experience, I had little knotty bulges (or thought to be fatty cysts) in several areas (1 was in my arm under the elbow fleshy area & had been there for up to three years, which I had shown to every doc I had been to, as as leaving, "by the way...?'') and FINALLY, after some elevated levels on blood tests, achey feeling & maybe, now, they don't think I am hypochondriac, and 'I am imagining'...

I have noticed if I shave in this area, mostly in the groin area, I get infected hair follicles that result in bumps and I have to squeeze them and use tweezers to pull out the hair inside. I DO NOT recommend this on the vulva !!! Try using warm compresses until you see your doctor. Wear skirts without underwear if possible, too. Keep the area clean and dry as much as possible.
i ignored it. until later on today i was in the shower, and i was washing down there and noticed a lump under my skin next to my vulva. its painful when touched, its on my right side, and its swollen, and kinda red. im so scared. and ive been crying for hours. please help. please.
The first possibility is a sebacious cyst which is an infected hair follicle. These are fairly common in any area where hair grows. If it's on your panty line it becomes even more irritated from the rubbing. You can take care of it by applying warm compresses to it twice a day. Simply wet a wash cloth with hot water (but not so hot that it's uncomfortable) and apply pressure until the cloth cools. Do this in the morning and at night. Avoid wearing tight fitting pants until it goes away.
They occur quite commonly in the vulva and appear as a small, hard lump which is generally painless. They are sometimes cause by waxing, or even bicycle riding, as hairs getting yanked out in that region have a tendency to start ingrowing. You don't need to treat it, unless it's uncomfortable. as it is like a pimple, if you use clean needle nosed tweezers behind the mass, and a clean needle to open the pore, you could get rid of the blockage.

There is still a painful, firm lump under the skin on the perineum (closer to the vulva than the rectum). Still unable to sit normally without discomfort. This has persisted throughout the post-op period. There has been no bowel problems; no constipation; no straining. I've tried a course of Ibuprofen and ice for 2 weeks without relief. Does warrant another visit to the surgeon?
Hi Dr Rockoff, Three months ago I had a strange rash on my vulva(mucousal area, not the hairy area). The first time it appeared my entire vulva went red and and in a few places I had what kind of looked like blisters. However, they did not have any fluid in them (put a pin in to check) they were white, looked delicate but were firm to touch. Some were so tiny (Pin head size), they had already started to go away and some were about half a mm long if that.
Basically it is dysplasia on the vulva area (some of you may remember I had this biopsied a while back). It is most definately not cancer. It is uncomfortable, and a fairly large area. I have to have it removed. This is done through laser, but is a bit more complicated then I had orginally been led to believe. It means an overnight stay in the hospital, I will be put out, and my Dr. tells me a fair bit of pain afterward. I am scheduled to have this done Jan. 13th.
