    Bump on my vagina lip
    Anon_1222 posted:
    I just noticed lastnight that I have a bump on my vagina lip towards the back. Its not painful, same skip color. I do shave, work out daily (living in florida, so I sweat)
    I was wondering what It could be...
    Can you please provide some ideas. I have done some research and am thinking maybe a cyst, ingrown hair, or clugged pore.

    Thank you for your time.

    I got some of these and they would pop up randomly, the only difference is that mine would be extremely itchy. I started to shave regularly and have not had any since. It has been a little over a year. I don't really know what it is but that is what helped me. Good luck.

    Hello, Ive had a few of these. Mine is a clogged pore I think. Try putting a warm compress on it and see if it will drain.

    Hi. I read the posts concerning painless bumps under the skin on the Labia Major (the outer fold). I am not a physician but have had lots of experience in gyn. It sounds to me like a Nabothian cyst. Sometimes they go away, sometimes they don't. Go onto WebMD and google "Nabothian Cyst) and take a look!
