I Found A Small Lump On My Labia Majora But It Has No Pain

I found a small lump on my labia majora , more towards the outer edges, away from the labia minora . It doesn t cause any pain and doesn t itch, but it feels like there is something solid underneath the skin . This is the first time I ve ever noticed a change in this area . Any ideas what it could be? I don t think it s a bartholin cyst, because the labia itself isn t swollen. It s an actual lump the size of a small pea.

Hello.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The swelling is likely to be a sebaceous cyst or just a swollen blocked gland just like a pimple. If there is no pain or discharge from the swelling then you can just ignore it or surgical removal is the solution.

Thank you, I was worried it might be a wart or something. :/
I'll make sure to ask my Dr. about it also during my check-up later this week. At least I can sleep with a littler more ease now. :)
