Dark bruised painful lump on the labia majora. Pus formation. What is it?

A dark spot showed up on my labia majora a couple of days ago. It appears like a bruise , but if felt, it seems there is a lump underneath the skin. Its only painful if squeezed really hard. My first instinct was a cyst , and when i squeezed it, white-ish puss like fluid/ blood came out. THe lump underneath the skin is no longer there, but the dark spot remains, and has gone from a purple-red bruise color to dark purple almost black. I am not sure what to think of it, I plan to see a gyno but that would be a few weeks from now.

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you are having infected Bertholin cyst on labia majora.
As it is a cyst when becomes infected, white cheese e material comes out of it and after some time it refills again.
It is to be excised with sac.
Take some antibiotic medicines for temporary relief till you get appointment of Gynaec.
Ok and bye.
