What does a bump in the labia indicate?

I have a reoccurring problem. About 9 months ago was the first time I had this happen. I found a long bump along the inside of my labia major near my clitoris, not on the edge of my lip but inside. It came at the time i got my period. It got so large and unbearable, i had to go to the doctor where they cut it open and it was just filled with blood. So they didnt know what it was. It hasn t happened again until recently in the past 3 months, ive gotten it twice and it comes with my period. The first time i got it, it didnt get that big and went away. This is my second time having it and it seems bigger than last time.

I could be an abscess with pus filled cavity.

Consult a gynecologist and get it drained.

Nothing much to worry as it can be done under local anesthesia.

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

Hi, I have a bump on my labia that bleeds sometimes and I m curious as to what it could be. I try to pop it but it just gets purple and keeps bleeding. There s no chance of an STD and I m very clean. I thought it could ve been an ingrown hair but it s been present for at least 3 weeks. What could this be?

so I found a medium sized bump about 1.5cm from the top (where the 2 lips meet) on my labia majora. being myself I couldn t leave it alone and squeezed / poked around at it until a thin small ammount of white stuff came out (I don t think it was puss.. a bit of blood came out too. now it s still sore but itches and is still a bump (just looks like it s more of a wound not a pimple looking thing). lately I ve been more itchy and irritated. both on my mound and vulva. I get an abnormal amount of STI tests as I have paranoia. but all negative.
