Lump in the labia majora. Undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. Could it be a cyst. Family history of vulval cancer

I have noticed a small lump on the rt labia majora . It feels like a pimple and is about 2.5mm. It does hurt a little but no irritation. No other problems in that area and unlikely to be STI . I am a nurse, 54 yrs old and was diagnosed with breast cancer in Dec 2012. I am currently undergoing chemotherapy . There is some discolouration of the lump which is noticeable because I have lost all my body hair with treatment. I am anxious about this. Could it be simply a cyst or is it something more sinister? My elderly great aunt has had vulval cancer recently.

You should consult your gynaecologist for clinical examination of that lump. Vulval cancer has typical shape, size , consistency generally has rough surface. In case of any suspicion biopsy should be obtained. Breast cancer has got no relation with this finding. Consult your doctor.
