I have had bronchitis for two weeks, been on medication and

Resolved Question:

I have had bronchitis for two weeks, been on medication and have ended up with thrush. By using the cream to treat the thrush I have discovered a hard lump in my vagina, a reasonable size and I can now feel it there all the time. Prior to the bronchitis and the coughing I had been experiencing some incontinence when sneezing, coughing or when trying to get to the toilet. What is this and what do I need to do about it?

Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. You may have a prolapsed uterus... which is when the ligaments holding the pelvic organs in place becomes weakened and permits the uterus to hang into the vagina. This is fairly common in older women. I would recommend you make an appointment to see your gynecologist so he can examine you and determine whether or not surgical repair is recommended. I hope this information helps you... please let me know if I can help you further:-)

I had a hysterectomy 15 years ago

CamilleRN :

This lump needs to be evaluated by your Doctor.. it can be a cyst or it can be a tumor.. for your peace of mind, and to make sure you receove proper treatment, I would recommend you have it looked at. Don't be too worried... in most cases a lump is not serious.
