What does a lump near the vagina indicate?

I'm 19 and have this marble sized lump under my skin near my vagina. It's near the top where the folds seperate and is on the lip adjacent to my clitoris, but its actually in my pubic hair. You cant see it unless you push on it. It moves around really easily and doesnt hurt. I noticed it about 2 months ago and it hasn't gotten smaller. I also have other symptoms such as persistent watery discharge that leaks through my pants, bloating, persistent period like cramps even when Im not on my period, and spotting in between periods.

Lump near vagina indicate Bartholin cyst which may be recurrent so anti-inflammatory and painkillers may resolve the problems.

Hi, I am 41 years old and on HRT due to early menopause. About 2 weeks ago I felt a funny feeling in my bottom (probably a slight pain when I would be cleaning myself after going to the toilet). I looked a few days later and came across a pea size lump on the right side of my inner lips (about the middle external side). Couldn t say it was painful. I am a worrier so I made an appointment with the doctor - not my own doctor, a junior reg. She examined me and took an internal swab which came back OK and she said it looked healthy. I was given a course of antibiotics which has had NO change on the lump whatsoever. She didn t think it was serious by the look of it. At the same time on my right labia majoria I had like a numbness pain it isn t totally away but nearly. Being a worrier I am very concerned could this be cancerous or something serious? Can you help me.

I have a hard, painful bump near my vagina closer to my right leg. I squeezed it and white puss came out. It became smaller but started throbbing a little. There is a tiny painless bump on the other side of my vagina but is smaller compared to the one on the right. I feel that it is swollen because when I crossed my legs I feel the pain. I m scared to go the doctor and I have not told my mother. What should I do?
