I have a lump on my vulva. Not a wart and not a whitehead. It's pea sized and seems to be under the skin. Is this something to worry about? Never had one before confused

I've had a couple of ones sounding similar to these over the years, turned out to be ingrown hairs (yuk - sorry!) and have "popped" and disappeared with hot cotton wool ball and tweezers...

Oh blimey! Don't like the sound of that I am a right fanny (pardon the pun)

I've had one and had to get anti biotics from the doctor.

Bartholins cyst?

I had one on my labia. Was like a small hard pea size lump. I bothered it for ages then one night a month or so ago it just popped. I think it was an ingrown hair. No trace of it now.

Does it hurt?

Hot bath and squeeze
<shudder>
They are so painful whatever they are

I had a lump in the non-hairy mucous membrane bit of my vulva/labia once. Totally freaked out and went to a walk in std clinic as couldn't face my GP. They said it was probably a blocked gland and to watch it for a week. **TMI warning 2 weeks later it was like a marble and I could see that it was white/yellow inside - before that it just seemed like a pink lump. Huge relief as I'd convinced myself it was some rare cancer of the lady garden. It got sore for a few days then I burst it in the shower almost by accident when I was washing. Full of cheesy gross waxy stuff.

... Whistles and walks away....

It does hurt yes. Think I may ask DH to ply me with vodka and pop it for me <boak>

Thanks for responses. Will take a closer look!

It's probably just a spot. Poke a pin in it grin

Sounds like a Bartholins cyst, should go away without you doing anything, but if not or it hurts, see a doctor. I've had a few, once got infected, made me quite ill and was due to have it lanced under GA when it popped on its own... ugh. Came back again, was large, so had it removed and "marsupialised", no problem since....

This looks like it has the potential to develop into a nice sporn thread.

Lovely. It's all pink and shiny.
I could no more stab a pin in my lady garden then I could in my eye confused
