Question: Hello,
I have a very small, bright, well defined spot in the inner lips of my vulva. The color is even and there are no odd edges. It might have been there before and I simply didn't notice it. Is there anything to be worried about?

According to your complaints it could be either angiokeratoma or melanotic macule.
I would recommend you to upload the pictures of the affected area so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.

Brief Answer:
Seems to be melanotic macule, no need to worry

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed the attached photograph and it seems to be melanotic macule.
It is a benign hyperpigmented spot which is very common in genitilia and mucosal sites.
No need to worry about it as it is harmless.

The skin on my labia is rough and shows small, close together light bumps. The bumpy area goes from just outside of my inner vaginal lips to a bit inside of my vagina. It s been this way for a few years, starting as only a small string of little dots on the labia. It started at a time when I was not sexually active, nor had I been yet. It itches often and I have thick, white, sometimes smelly discharge. I m worried that I may have something.

Why do I have such a high area as men refer to as muffin. Mine is extremely large and high even when shaved clean (where pubic hair grows on top), is it the bone behind or tissue, fat whatever. Otherwise I m thin but in that are it seems like I have a lot more than other females?

Hi, I have a hard pea sized hard ball on the inside of my labia majora. It does not have a visible head as it seems to be underneath the surface level, and it does not discharge anything. It has a blackish undertone. It is not painful but it is uncomfortable when sitting cross legged. Could it be a cyst or ingrown hair? What can I do to make it go away?
