hello. Thanks for the query.
Symptoms of Recurring lump on inner side of labia suggest bartolin's cyst. Since its tender and and recurring at the same side and site, Bartolin's cyst has progressed to bartholin's abscess.

A Bartholin's abscess forms when a small opening (duct) from the gland gets blocked.

Soaking in warm water four times a day for several days usually provides some relief and causes the abscess to open and drain on its own. However,drainage of abscess and MARSUPIALIZATION is tratment of choice.
