As you describe it may be a Bartholin cyst. You can help me through diagnosis with attachment of a photo of the cyst.

Bartholin cyst is caused by the blockage of the duct of Bartholin glands that are normally found in the vagina.

You can use warm compresses over it, use hot and cold baths and with Epson salts, to make it open itself and drain.

If it doesn't open you should go to the doctor to drain it.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
