Swollen inner labia, no bumps or pain or discharge, gets irritated after intercourse. What treatment should be taken?

My left inner labia has been swollen for 8 months. It s soft smaller than a golf ball, not painful and no bumps or discharge . My doctor asked if it was painful and I said no. Nothing was done 7 months ago but it is a little larger. It sometimes is irritated after intercourse with my long term fiance. What can I do to make it go away? And NEVER come back? My hygiene is above the norm, so I am confused. My doctor tested me for everything and all was negative 7 months ago.

Welcome to HCM.
According to your clinical presentation,you are probably suffering from BARTHOLIN CYST which is located unilaterally inner side of labium majus. Local discomfort and dyspareunia (painful coitus) are common symptoms.
It needs surgical treatment called MARSUPIALISATION ( incision of the cyst and closing like button hole appearance). It is minor operation and recurrence is rare. So consult with your doctor for undergoing this operation.
Be well and tc.
