How To Deal With A Lump Near The Right Genitals And Feels Pain?
Afternoon. I experienced a lump near the right genitals, initially small but slightly enlarged and when I touch it feels a bit painful. What should I do. Thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Lumps in the right genitals that are painful in women may occur due to Bartholin's cyst. This cyst is formed due to blockage of the outlet of the Bartholin gland, making it difficult for mucus to come out, and confined by a sac to form a cyst. These cysts can be inflamed, so that not only triggers a lump, but can also cause pain, swelling, unpleasant odor, even fever and chills.
In addition to Bartholon cysts, painful lumps on the right genitals can also occur due to other factors, such as vulvovaginitis, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, folliculitis, insect bites, lymphadenitis, acne, benign or malignant tumors, and so on.
You can try natural treatments first as follows:
Clean your genitals with clean water, no need to add soap, fragrance, or indiscriminate antiseptic
Soak painful genitals and bumps in warm water
Do not carelessly use chemicals around the genitals
Not having risky sex
Wear underwear and pants that are clean, loose, and soft
Shorten your pubic hair regularly, but don't pull it out, just shave it short
Do not carelessly massage, squeeze, or give treatment to the bumps on the genitals
If within 3 days the lump does not improve, check yourself to the doctor or obstetrician so that you are given the right treatment according to the cause. Some mild conditions will generally improve enough with the provision of several types of drugs and natural treatments above. However, if this conservative treatment has not been successful in alleviating your complaint, it can also be that the doctor will take other actions, such as surgery.
Hope this helps ...
