Hello and welcome,

From your history it seems that the hard structure may either be a cervical polyp, or the cervix itself coming down [ prolapse]. Another possibility is a vaginal cyst or a bartholin's cyst [ both are fluid filled sacs in vagina or labia].

Tiny fibroids do not require any treatment unless they are symptomatic. So do not worry for that. But what you need is a per speculum examination of the cervix and vagina to see what the hard mass is. So see your gynecologist and get an examination.

Do not worry, these are common conditions and can be treated.
Hope this was helpful.
Feel free to ask any further queries and I will be happy to help.
Thanks for using HCM.     
Have a good day.
