Hi I’m 39 And 3 Days Ago I Noticed A
Seems to be non harmful swelling of vaginal tissue-needs caution.
Thanks for the queryI understand your concern.
* The lump occuring on labia near vaginal opening , is hard in begining &turning soft later on ..is mostly swelling of the small secretory gland in labia(minora or vaginal lip) near the vaginal opening... is likely to be - a lump of Bartholins gland there...(while its opening gets clogged due to increased vaginal secretion at ovulation.)
Such painless lump later on gets softer &may disappear over the time.But in case it gets infected...it would be painful&would cause inflammation of the gland turning into abscess later on.
Manegment :consists of keeping the lump clean(good genital hygiene..by washing it with fresh water frequently./Don't try to open it up by squizing or pricking it .)
* Small lumps any where on labia majora are usually due to trauma to skin or deeper tissues...
These are harmless ,disappear over a time or may remain there for many days.
* Don't worry, unless they increase in size, swell up, start paining and form an abscess. or a bigger mass
** So at the moment
-you need to just keep the lump clean...avoid infection (may be due to bad hygiene or sexually transmitted)
I hope that helps you.Any follow up query is welcome.
it's just a physical character of liquid in the cyst.
Thanks for the follöw up query.
You are really inquisitive!A good quality indeed!
My answer that logically stands true...is, the lump has turned softer...that is because it's a cyst.Cyst is a lump filled with liquid&here the liquid is mucus (secreted by Bartholin gland for lubrication of vagina.This secretion is trapped due to block in its opening..this forming a cyst)
Now,when you lie down liquid gains horizontal level and so it becomes spread over /flatter& the size appears smaller. While as you stand up it pops out with gravity,along with all the genital organs &looks bigger.
Hope that satisfies you.Any follow up query is welcome.
