Lump on labia majora, painful to touch or move. Help

I m 17 and a virgin ... however a few days ago, I got a lump inside of my right side labia majora . Its now extremely painful at touch or movement. There is no head, so I don t thu no its a pimple or cyst that I can see so far. I believe this has happened to me last summer, and it just kind if went away on its own. However its just a lot more painful this time. I know that it is fairly large and the size of a grape at least. Please help because i told my mom and it freaks her out so i probably wont be going to a doc soon. Thank you!

From your notes it appears that you have bartholin abscess. You must see gynecologist for treatment.
If it is just grapes size (2X2cm), it will just need incision and drainage and antibiotics. If the abscess grows big by the time you see your doctor, it needs to be drained through a very small operation. In the operation roof of the abscess is removed and the cyst wall is sutured to the skin . This creates a new opening for drainage of fluid. You will be given antibiotics and painkillers.
I hope I have answered to your satisfaction
