I have a lump inside my vaginal canal, on the upper wall. It is just INside the vaginal canal, not in the vulva. It is walnut sized, and has ridges, it is fleshy and its surface feels like a walnut. It slightly protrudes outside the vagina, especially when I bear down. I have no bleeding, no abnormal discharge, and no foul odor. By the way, i know where my cervix is, and this is not it.
I have 2 children, age 6 and 3, both born vaginally.
Just to clarify, the lump is not hard like a nut, it is more like fleshy and wrinkly, what i meant is that its surface has ridges like a walnut, kinda. It is not painful or sore. It also is large.
I thought the Bartholin gland is more to the sides, right? This is on the top of the vaginal wall, it looks like it protrudes when I bear down, and like it is sort of blocking the entrance.
I will most definitley going to get examined, but since this is not going to happen for 2 weeks, and I am freaking out, I was hoping to know some pointers to show if this is cancer or not, is there some charertaristic to look for, some differentiating factor between cysts and cancer? I searched online a lot, and found nothing, so this will be really helpful
Isearched a lot online, and I know all the possilbe causes of vaginal lumps, gartner, barth. cysts, bladder prolapse, etc, what I am looking for is how to know if this is one of these things or cancer? The diagrams online all show cysts as smooth surface perfect circle growths, while the lump I have is wrinkly and looks like it is not perfectly smooth like the diagrams show,and it is inside the vaginal canal.
Appreciating your help
I went to see my gyn, he said the ridgy thing inside my vagina is just nothing, just my vaginal wall, I dont understand, how come when it almsot protrudes when I bear down? Also, he said I have a very slighlty prolapsed uterus, not to worry about.
He also said I have a mild infection, and gave me somethng for that.
Could my gyn have missed what I am talking about? How can anyone miss something that big and horrible?
