What does swelling in the vagina indicate?

Hello I am only 16.. so I am kinda weird about talking to my mom about this but only right libra minora it s swollen or whatever , I don t really know . But it kinda looks like it s filled with blood , or some type of fluid , when it pressed on the fluids go away but when it s let go , it s still there . Ive had this for a while now and i use to put a hot rag on it and it would go down and back to normal , but last leg it seems as if it s just gotten bigger and very noticeable .. I m very nervous . Please help

I think should check with gynaecologist. It might be a cyst or abscess. But need physical examination and perhaps further biopsy test. Keep good local hygiene. Do not scratch or squeeze that area. Talk to your mom and get checked by gynaecologist.

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

Take care
