it may be Bartholin's abscess or cyst. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a painless, hard your gynecologist so that you can be examined. It is only after an examination that it will become clear what the swellings is.take care

Hi Doctor. I was examining myself and I felt a little bump on the lower left of my clitoris. When I looked at it it seemed pretty normal compared to the other one but it kind of seemed like a pimple . Could it just be a pimple ? Because previously I found a bump on the right side of the inside wall of my vagina and it went away in a matter of two days

There is a lump on my clitorious and it has been there for a very long time. It doesn t itch or is uncomfortable, but it just bothers me everytime I am cleaning my vagina. And I have been told that I smell like vagina, therefore I believe the lump may be a cause of me smelling fishy. And I am not sexually active. What is it? What can I do to treat it?
