    I was wondering if someone might be able to point my in the right direction. I have this lump by my vagina but its not near the opening its on my skin near the top of my vagina but not on it. It looks like bump under my skin and it doesn't hurt, its not red, just enlarged. Nothing leaks out of it either. Any ideas what it could be?

    Sounds like it could be your clitoris. Google it.

    Really? I'm not that dumb. It is not my clitoris. Its on the skin beside mu clitortis, but not on the "lips" as they are referred to. Its not on any part of my vagina, but the skin surrounding it.

    can you give us more detail on the bump? is it a bump kinda like a mosquito bite or is the bump clear an looks like theres liquid inside? does it look like a normal bump as if one that yu can get on your face? (like a bump thats a zit but has no white or black head)

    It just like a lump under my skin. It doesn't look like a sore and it doesn't have a white head on it or a black one like a pimple or zit. It's a tough little ball under my skin, I guess is how you would describe it. I can feel the bottom of it if I like squeeze the sides and it doesn't hurt to touch.

    No, you're fine. I was just trying to see if I could find out what it is before making an appointment so I have a better idea. Thanks anyway though! : )

    Sounds like you could have a cyst. Either of one of the glands surrounding your vagina or a simple sebaceous cyst. These are nothing to worry about and may or may not be removed.

    I agree with the other poster that it sounds like a cyst. perhaps a blocked oil gland. But I always thought those were someone painful and inflamed. I don't believe it is anything to worry about, but you may want to get it checked out to relieve your anxiety.
