Question: Rough feeling bump on labia{Dr. Pls Respond}


 hippiewitch - Tue Feb 26, 2008 11:22 am

Hi,


I have a bump on both of my labia and one of them burns sometimes. The one on my right labia doesn't bother me. There is also some pain sometimes such as on touch. You can barely see it,and it feels rough. I am married,and have only been with my Husband since I met him when I was 19. I'm almost 28 now. So I would think I could rule an std out. The only other person I had sex with in my life was when I was 16. I got tested for std's years ago and they came back negative. Based on the description I have given,do you have any ideas on what it could possibly be? I know of course that it is best to see a doctor,and I will if needed,but I wanted to ask here as well. Thanks in advance.

User avatar Hello,
You could have a bartholin cyst (harmless, fluid filled cyst on the bartholin gland which lubricates the vagina). Or it could be an infected follicle which will likely resolve on its own. It does not sound serious at any rate. Watch it and if it doesn't go away you can see your doctor.

Best wishes.
