Have a lump above the vagina. No medication or test till now. What cab this be?

Two days back I felt a hard lump under the skin a little above my vagina. I don't know if its mon pubis or hood. Anyways it hurt a bit when pressed. Now it has become the size of a lemon and hurts constantly. A pimple has formed right above the clitoris where the bump ends and I guess its filled with pus. I am going to see a doc tomorrow but I just wanted to see what it could be.

Thanks for the query.
You might be suffering from bartholin cyst.
Another possibility is a bacterial abscess.

You need treatment with oral antibiotics.
When the pus accumulates it can be drained.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
