Vagina lump - help!
QI’ve found a lump just at the entrance of my vagina, it doesn’t hurt, but something is definitely there. Do I need to worry?
AGo to your GP to be checked out so you can rule out other conditions, but it could be a Bartholin’s cyst. Bartholin’s glands are a pair of glands found at the opening of the vagina which produce a fluid to lubricate the vagina during sex. The fluid travels from the gland to the vagina though a tiny tube called a duct. If this duct becomes blocked (and we don’t know why this happens) the fluid can build up, causing a cyst that looks like a lump – you may notice that it gets bigger during sex. If it’s not causing any problems, it’s best left alone, however if it starts to cause you pain, or if it becomes infected, then you may need to have it removed.
