Thanks for writing to us.
I read your query and understand your concerns. The swelling you are describing appear to be arising out of either mucous glands or base of hair follicles. Since it has a bad odor, it appears to be infected. You need to start antibiotics immediately if infected. I would suggest that you to visit a gynecologist and get examined for accurate diagnosis. It is likely to be needed to operate and remove. You also need to be assessed for infection. Please visit a gynecologist today.
I hope I addressed your concern.
