Irregular shaped lump outside vaginal lip. Hurts on pushing, sexually active. What is it?

Today I woke up with an irregular shaped lump that appears to be under the skin on the edge of my right outer vaginal lip. It is up high, like where the clit is and not near the vaginal opening, it hurts when I push on it, and feels uncomfortable. It is kind of hard like a knot. I am sexually active and 17 years old, I haven t had intercourse or any other sexual activities in 3 or 4 weeks though. I don t have any idea what this is ! It is almost a weird tadpole shape, and us visible. Is it a cyst , STD , cancer , or something else ?? I m really scared !! Please help !! :(

Hi thanks for your question.
The irregular shaped lump your having in vaginal wall most probably could be bartholin cyat.Bartholin glands are normally present in vagina and produce sceration for vaginal lubrication duration sexual activity.when duct of bartholin gland get blocked due to infection or any other reason result in cyst formation.Infection in cyst can cause.The other reason could be a boil that is infection of hair follicle.There is nothing to worry consult a physician who may examine you and may prescribe you appropriate treatment.You may need a course of antibiotic.
