Brief Answer: Not due to pregnancy. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. The presence of a lump in the vaginal wall is not suggestive of pregnancy. The small lump could be due to 1. Vaginal inclusion cysts 2. Gartner's duct cysts. 3. Bartholin's cyst A careful examination followed by investigations like biopsy may be needed for diagnosis. Usually it is a benign non progressive swelling. Please visit your gynecologist to undergo physical check up and also to undergo relevant investigations required in your case. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Would it be suggestive of endometreosis? My pediatric obgyn suspects i may be suffering from it, however i have never had a pap smear after becoming sexually active but always have protected sex. All regular gyn tests and std checks came back negative during my last visit about a month ago and the only thing that showed up was a low vitamin d level
