Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcare magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns.

Since when you have this lump. From your notes it appears to be a cyst probably a bartholin cyst or sebaceous cyst. It could be lipoma too.
Does the size of the lump increase on standing. If so then it could be hernia.
Examination by Gynecologist will confirm the diagnosis of the bulge.
I hope this is helpful. If you have further concerns, I will be happy to answer.

Thank you for considering these concerns I have regarding a possible Bartholin cyst: It's sort of squishy/sort of firm, and I have had it for years. There's no pain, but it seems to be growing. I have a dreadful fear of doctors.Also, my period...

I have soft, round, bright red growth, about a quarter inch in diameter at the entrance to my vagina. I have no pain.

I had a Bartholins cyst and i went to the gyn. today to have it drained. This is the 4th time Ive had it. Every time it hurts like hell and i cant walk or sit down. The first three rimes they drained it it was more pus than blood but this time it was mostly blood. Is there supposed to be so much blood? They put a catheter in to let it drain. Again the first 3 times when they cut it was instant relief but this time it still hurt after. Could it be because its still swollen? I always get it around the time i get my period. So can that have anything to do with it? Can my Bartholin s gland be taken out to prevent this from happening? Is there a way to prevent it? By the way I m 17 years old and this interferes with everything especially school because i have to miss so many days. Please help i don t want this to happen to me anymore.
