Bump on my labia

11/24/2008

Question:

I have a small, round bump on my labia majora (on the outside). Its only on one side, I`ve had it for about 2 months. Its pinkish red, soft, doesn`t hurt, and hasn`t changed in size or color. I have a steady boyfriend- of 5 years now. And he doesn`t have a bump on his genitalia anywhere. Is this a pimple? Sebaceous cyst? Or should I be worried its something more serious?

Answer:

The fact that it hasn't changed in the past 2 months, doesn't hurt and doesn't seem to be coming to a head means it is not likely a pimple or sebaceous cyst. A skin tag or genital wart could have this appearance. You should have it examined to have it more accurately diagnosed.
