Swollen labia minora. Low back pain, fever, nausea. Why the lumps there?

HI! I am currently having a feeling of swollen labia minora , near the vaginal entrance. I had a history of yeast infection but treated it already wih an ointment prescribed by my OB. Last week, i had a urinalysis due to severe lower back pain , slight fever, and nausea. Urinaysis resulted to pus cells over 50/hpf, few bacteria, and few amorphous urates. I also had a KUB done, and the results were normal. I am waiting for my urine culture sensitivity results. a week before my urinalysis, i had felt a somewhat itchy, painful lump near my vaginal opening. two weeks after, i still have the lump and i think its causing my vaginal entrance swollen/painful/itchy. i have had no sexual encounters yet. please help me figure this out.

such types of lumps result from either blockage of the sebaceous ducts present in the labium minora for the purpose of lubrication or if the lump is large size that is more than 2 cm then cause is most probably the bartholin cyst which occurs in bartholin gland and surgical excision is the treatment of choice
