Bump in the vagina after suffering a tear. No STD. PAP smear report normal. Is it a scar tissue?

After an episode of rough sex, I had a small tear at the opening of my vagina. As it began to heal, I noticed a small bump at the top of the healing area. I went to my OB who said everything was healing well and there was no cause for concern. I have tested negative for all STDs and my PAP was normal. The area has completely healed, but I can still feel (not visualize) the bump. Could this be scar tissue or something else?

I can understand your concern. The best way to find if this scar tissue or related to some infection/disease is a visual/physical examination.

Which I am sure your doctor has conducted already. As you have tested negative for all sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and a pap smear has also returned a normal result, I do not think there should be anything to worry about. But for your satisfaction you could go about one last investigation; a biopsy. This would confirm/rue out any abnormality if present.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
