Thank you for your query.
You need to be examined by a gynecologist to find out what flabby thing you are talking about .The lesion may be excised after diagnosis by biopsy / FNAC .

Brief Answer:
?? Vaginal folds or even hymen

Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help.

If you do not mind, please write back to me with your exact age. I would like you to know that this is most probably just completely normal, as this could be your inner vaginal lips or your hymen (if at all you have a recent history of sexual contact, history of vigorous physical activity, sports like cycling, etc.).

Could you also let me know the following information that would help me greatly:
-Your actual age
-Sexual status. If yes, when was your last sexual encounter?
-Involvement in sports? If yes, what kind of activities?
-Have you attained menarche? Had your period?

If you do not mind, then you can also take an image of the spoken region and attach it to our discussion and I could examine it better and comment on it with more accuracy.

Other than this, there are possibilities of it being infections, growths, etc; those will require examination by a gynecologist, but in my opinion this is most probably completely normal. It is either your inner labia folds or your hymen (torn).

I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.

Best wishes.

Brief Answer:
Your vaginal lips/folds; perfectly normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello once again ma'am.

As suspected, this is most probably your vaginal folds or hymen. As you are growing into a young woman, your body changes and so do your genitalia. The new changes include the development and growth of your vagina and folds around it. This is completely normal and there is nothing to worry about. This is what all women experience.

I hope you find my response helpful young lady. Please feel free to write to me about anything, I am always available to help you. :)

Best wishes.

Brief Answer:
Almost sure about it being normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello once again ma'am.

I am almost sure, given your age ma'am. But if you are comfortable, then you could attach a picture pf the spoken region so I could confirm the same, and you can be completely satisfied as well.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Best wishes.

I am a renal transplant patient. Surgery done 6 months back. After transplatation I used to take immuno suppresents like Pangraf, Cellcept and Prednisolon. Immediate after surgery my S.Creatin levels were 1.4, 1.3, 1.2 then 1.5 etc..After one month of when I checked my Tac level it was very high ie, 14.4. Then Pangraf dosage reduced for next one month.But there was no significant reduction in Creatin and then checked Tac level it shows 14.1. At that time S.Creatin was 1.7.Then stopped Pangraf and started Certican .25. A sudden increase in S.creatin and it became 2.6. My Biopsy shows ATN+ and other readings were quite normal. My Potassium and RBS are quite normal. Then started Neoral 50mg and tried 25mg, but again S.creatin level gets increased and now it is 3.6. My Doppler test parameters are normal.
