Discomfort while sitting cross legged, knot with white end on vagina, popped with white fluid and blood. Cervical polyp?

Hi. My question you think I could have a cervical polyps?. while I was sitting down today I noticed I found it uncomfortable to sit cross legged, like there was a pressure on the outer edge of my vagina . Once I got home I took it upon myself to examine it. I found a knot with a white end on it. (at the time it was hard now its softer) I tried to touch it (with clean hands, of course) and it popped.. white fluid came out as well as a little blood . I m very worried. help please.

Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,

Your description suggest to be infective in origin which could be bacterial infection to hair root?

As it has ruptured and drained naturally just keep it clean and apply some antibiotic ointment and it should heal.

If pus collects again and increases in size then get it examined and if required antibiotics and anti inflammatory treatment may be given to hasten recovery.

If abscess is formed(less likely) some time it needs to be surgically drained.

It is certainly not cervical polyp as polyp is very deep inside vagina and not visible from out side.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck.
