ulcer-like lump down below

Can't get an appointment with my gp and am worrying myself sick.

Noticed a sore feeling in one specific spot around my vulva this morning. Took out a mirror to look and (sorry if TMI) noticed a hard lump/swelling above the entrance to vagina and below the urinary hole - sorry no good with medical terminology.

It looks like a mouth ulcer. seems to have a small head, as a spot would. But when I pressed it, realised it was hard.

Googled herpes /genital warts but they seem to be more like red blisters. This lump is flesh coloured.

Any ideas what it could be?
Thank you

Batholins cyst at a guess (inside vulva?) treatable, don't fret.

YY Bartholins Cyst, they are very common. Ouchy ouchy. I had one for Christmas a few years ago, hurt to walk. Hot bath, and with any luck it will pop.

Make an appointment with your GP in the meantime. Don't worry.

Phew, hope it's that. Didn't come up with anything that wasn't sinister on the Internet.

Many thanks for the reassurance

Google Bartholins Cyst and see if that's a better match.
