Lump between urethra and vagina, hard like rock, no pain. Sexually active. What could this be?

I have a lump which is about the size of a large pea in between my urethra and vagina. I'm 16 and am sexually active but I'm 99% sure I have no STDs, although I've had no tests but my boyfriend and I were both virgins. It doesn't hurt, even when I apply pressure, but is really hard like a rock. I don't know what it is and have looked some stuff up online and was wondering if you could help me to identify it as I'm not comfortable with going to see a doctor. Thank you

Hi there Young lady.

I read your detailed history & note that you & your boyfriend were virginal & there is no fear or risk of an STD.

While i wish you the best, this need not be entirely true. STD's like a viral wart or Molluscum can still be spread through auto-inoculation with hand to genital contact & being a virgin does not preclude one from contracting or passing on an STD.

There are many glands in & around the vaginal opening & any of these could be inflamed & may or may not be secondararily inflamed leading to this swelling.

Perhaps a Sitz bath using a shallow tub with lukewarm water & a course of an antibiotic & an anti-inflammatory agent eg ibuprofen taken in a 3 times a day dosage with food may help allievate your symptoms but dare say it will require a prescription.

Good Luck & Do keep me in the loop how you fare...but please remember while i do not have the right to question your sexuality or indulgence therof, i find myself duty-bound to advice you to practice safe sex even if it is with your boyfriend! Cheers.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
This is nothing serious and is common lesion. It sounds to me like clogged Skenes gland and it might be problematic if become inflammated.If it progress in size I suggest to visit gyn and it can be easily incised and drainaged. Wish you good health.
