Lump On The Side Of The Vagina Since 3 Months Ago?
Hello I am eighteen years old, 3 months ago I had a lump in the folds on the side of the vagina and it hurt. I think my boils have been cooled until now. red, when held hard lumps are medium
Hello Love, Thank you for the question.
Have you seen a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology to determine the cause? What is the size of this lump? Is it like zits or bigger? Lumps on the side of the vagina can be caused by Bartholin's cyst. Bartholin gland is a gland that is on both sides of the vaginal lips. This gland functions to produce lubricating fluid when having intercourse. Bartholin's glands can become blocked due to bacterial infection, inflammation or long-term irritation. Bacterial infections can occur due to sexually transmitted infections or E.coli bacteria. Blockage of this channel causes fluid can not come out and accumulate to form cysts. If an infection occurs, these cystic lumps will redden, enlarge, and feel painful, forming Bartholin's abscess. In addition to Bartholin's cysts, lumps in the genital area can be caused by folliculitis, genital warts, or genital herpes.
Please check with your obstetrician and gynecologist. The doctor will examine your genital area to determine the cause. If it is caused by a Bartholin cyst or Bartholin's abscess, the doctor may suggest treatment in the form of pain medication, antibiotics, surgical removal of the cyst / removal of the abscess, or marsupialisation. Handling given by a doctor will be adjusted to your condition.
To reduce temporary pain, you can sit in a warm bath. You can also take paracetamol if the pain worsens.
Hopefully this information is useful.
