Hard lump near the clitoris. Should I be concerned?

I am a 20 year old female and for a couple of months I have noticed a hard lump under the skin to the left of my clitoris. It doesn't bother me at all, and I don't believe its growing. On the surface of my skin where the bump is it looks like a pimple, like a white head on it. Its hard and when I pinch it, its almost like the same effect when you bend the cartlege in you ear. It doesn't go away but it hasn't gotten bigger either

Since you are not complaining of any pain or fever and is present for many months,it can't be a boil or folliculitis.
The most likely cause should be a sebaceous cyst.
Sebaceous cyst doesn't cause any pain unless it gets infected.
You must consult a Gynecologist and get the diagnosis made.
There is no treatment for it except surgical removal of the cyst.
Anti biotics are prescribed,if the cyst gets infected.
