Question: I woke up an noticed some vaginal discomfort, when in the shower I located a small lump, tender when touched, under the skin between my labia minora and magora. It can't be seen, only felt. But the area can be uncomfortable when i am sitting. It is located more higher then lower in prospective of my vagina. Trying to get a Doctors appointment as soon as possible.

Most probably it is Bartholin cyst which has become e infected.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcone to Healthcare Magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.

From your notes it seems like you have Bartholin cyst. Either it is large or probably is infected. That is why you are experiencing the discomfort.

Infected Sebacious cyst and hair follicle infection too can cause discomfort.

If the discomfort worsen's in a day or two , it means that it is infected. Then you need to go to emergency .

Consult Gynecologist for evaluation.
best wishes,
Dr Rama.
