Question: I have discovered a large swelled area just inside my vagina opening. It's almost like a small ball. I noticed it tonight while showering. I'm terified that it is cancer, but I really don't know what it is.

I hope I hear from you soon. I don't know if I can sleep, but I'm going to try. I'm really scared and worried right now. I will be checking this throughout the night to see if you have answered yet. Thank you

Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be cancer

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

This swelling is unlikely to be cancer. This could be some cyst like sebaceous cyst which disappears by itself.

It would help me to identify the swelling better if you could click a picture and send me as attachment with this question. I will be able to advice better after seeing picture.
