hello, they are many reasons for your labia to get itchy,
one is the hygiene of your labia if it is not good you are prone to itch.
second is do you have a vaginal discharge accompanying the itch if yes we need to find out whether it is bacterial or fungal
third what soap do you use to bathe with, dryness can cause itchiness
fourth wearing tight undergarments can cause you to sweat leading to friction and itchiness and an area for organism to grow.
fifth - periods can make ur labia itch due to hormonal imbalance
a small bump on the vagina cant be called cancer, i would suggest get yourself checked with a gynecologist for check up and the right treatment.
hope to have answered your query

hi there
am dr.surendiran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
NOTHING to worry ,i understand you completely
The bump ,you mentioned ,would be a boil or cyst, in order to prevent further spread of the infection.
Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap ,that help to relieve your pain. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a gynecologist in that case.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
hope helped your query
