Brief Answer:
Hernia or bartholin cyst

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
I have reviewed the photograph.
The photograph and the symptoms are suggestive of either inguinal hernia or bartholin cyst.
Since the labia is hanging down and the pain is in the abdomen too, the diagnosis of hernia seems more plausible.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist for proper examination, investigations and treatment accordingly.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Brief Answer:
Bladder or urethra may be involved

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Hernia can be through femoral canal or through inguinal canal.
Sometimes, bladder or urethra gets stretched in hernia, hence there are urinary complains.
However, exact diagnosis can be made by proper examination.

I am a 19 years old boy, 160cm and 90 kg. I am on Zoloft and Respiridone for my obssession problems. Sometimes my vas deferens(mostly the right one) feels swollen and it goes away after a while and it's sometimes painless and sometimes have tenderness. on the other hand some times I get pain in my inguinal canal that makes my vas deferens to have tenderness. No pain in the testis. Is it a side effect of my drugs? Is there anything to be worried about?

I had a large testicular cyst removed via my left inguinal canal 10 days ago and am still experiencing significant swelling in my left scrotum. It appears blood is collecting there via an ultrasound last Thursday. My doctor says this is normal post-operative swelling but my left testicle is now the size of a small grapefruit. I also question the inguinal canal technique rather than direct excision via the scrotum that appears to have excessively traumatized my testicle. Any thoughts greatly appreciated!
