I had a uti, then got thrush and for the last week and a half I've had a lump on my labia. Doc said its not bartholins but is not concerned. I however am concerned. It feels like a couple of lumps on the right side of my labia.
Really worried about cancer. They do hurt but only a bit x

Sound sebaceous OP. Could be from ingrown hair or just follicle. You may find they get a bit bigger and uncomfy.

There's no hair where it it though?? They are pea sized and uncomfortable. Doc says there's lots of glands down there but theyve been up for over a week x

If you google vulval cancer you will see it's nothing like what you have.
It's not something that pops up in a week or so. It's more a case of developing very slowly over years in women with other vulval skin conditions.

It''s more likely you have 'blind' spots under the skin.

They will probably just disappear in a short time.

Thanks pink
I do appreciate your advice.

What a blind spot? Would it be linked to my uti I had and dot feel like it's gone. Feels like it's coming back, like an irritation x

A 'blind' spot isn't a medical term; it's sometimes used for spots that are mainly under the skin and aren't raised up so they 'pop' IYSWIM!

If they don't go, ask your dr if they can refer you to a gynae who specialises in vulval conditions.

Tiny spots- pinhead size- can be caused by thrush. What you have may be -literally- spots like we get on the face etc. Give them time to clear up. Try not to worry.

They are spots or tiny. It's like a swelling so quite a big area which I think has a smaller lump in it. It stings occasionally but generally not. But I've got this irritation feeling again like I had with my uti and weeing lots.
Going on holiday on Monday so wanted rid sad x

Sorry meant to say say aren't spots x

Ok done some research, got some perspective and looks like my thrush hasn't gone or maybe my uti is returning.
Didn't realise thrush can be so bad, only two days left of anti fungal meds so bit concerned it's not gone yet. X
