Sore lump on left inner labia, occurs after or during periods, swelling. Treatment options?

Hi , I have a very sore and uncomfortable lump on my left inner labia ! I gave had this before and it just pops after a while. Sometimes they occur after or during my period. I have tried soaking it in hot water but its still sore and the swelling not going down. I figure its sore and uncomfortable as its in a very sensitive area. Please do you have any idea what it is and how I can treat it ?

Hi thanks for your question.
The sore lump which your mentioning on your inner labia most probably could be bartholin cyst.Bartholin glands are normally present in vagina and produce screations for lubrication of vagina during sex.Bartholin cyst is formed when the duct of bartholin gland get blocked due to infection or due to some other cause and screations are retained in gland.I would suggest you to consult some gynaecologist and get it removed.
Hope this answerd your question
