This morning, I noticed a swollen part at the very back of my vagina. It looks almost like a lump and its tender. Its also a little sore. Ive never noticed this before. Its stil in the opening but right before you get to my anus. I also can push on it but it goes right back to normal. Do you have any clue what this could be becuase its really worrying me. Thanks a bunch.

Bartholin's gland is located near the vaginal opening and if obstruction of the gland occurs a cyst develops. Symptoms may present with redness, warmth, pain or tenderness near the vaginal opening. Treatment of an infected Bartholin's gland cyst is typically with antibiotic therapy, drainage of the cyst etc. I would suggest an evaluation by your physician to identify the cause of your symptoms.
