Brief Answer:
You need a physical examination in order to make a diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and I hope I can help you today.

There can be a number of lesions that can have a white/blue appearance that could appear above your clitoris.

One of the most common vulvar masses is a sebaceous cyst. Sebaceous cysts are formed by a blockage of sweat or mucous glands under the skin, which causes fluid to build up under the skin forming a bluish lesion that looks like a ball.

Other possibilities are labial polyps, other types of vulvar cysts, or in the worst case a type of tumor.

I do not know how long you have had this lesion, but the only way to make a diagnosis is to have an experienced gynecologist physically look at it.

If you would like, if you attach a photograph, I would be happy to do my best to evaluate the lesion. It would be helpful to know if you have any other symptoms (like itching or pain) and if you have any history of abnormal PAP smears or any skin disorders.

Let me know, otherwise a physical examination is really the only way to accurately diagnose what this lump could be.

I hope I was able to adequately answer your question today and that my advice was helpful. If you need anything further I would be happy to evaluate you as best as I can if you can send a photo and a bit more gynecological history.

Otherwise I hope you are able to be seen by a local gynecologist and get an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment.

Best wishes,

Dr. Brown
