Baby having lump between vagina and bum. No pain. What is it?

Hi, my 7 month old baby has a lump (not a gristly lump -- quite soft if you like) between her vagina and bum (more or less right above her bum hole). it has got slightly bigger since i first noticed it (approx 3 - 4 weeks ago) however it doesnt seem to cause her any stress or pain and doesnt seem to have grown any more in the last 2 weeks. it doesnt really look sore but i dont want to leave it any longer and my GP has said that they cannot see her until the 19th Feb -- this was when i spoke to my GP last week. Could you please give any information on what this is most likely to be? thanks.

Thank you for your query
There are a variety of things that can cause such a small lump. It can be small lipoma (which is a benign mass of fat). It can be a skin tag (which is a normal stage during healing of a peri-anal fissure: crack near the anus; can be suggestive if she had constipation in recent past). If it is not growing a rapid rate then you can wait till 19th feb. However if there is a rapid growth or fever (abscess) then you should go immediately. Consult a pediatric surgeon for the same
Hope that helps
God bless you
