I have a long tube-like bump in my right labia. It comes and goes. Painful to touch. Vaginal burning
Troulbe with vaginal infections. Thought I had a vaginal or bladder infection. This lump seems to be more pronounced when I have an infection.
Is this in the labia minora or majora?
running up and down for front to back?
where exactly, towards the top, bottom, middle?
It runs towards the vaginal opening and seems like a tube and gets larger towards the vagina. I'm sorry...minora or majora? It is about the middle and runs front to back. It is sore to touch
Ok. the most common thing that is remotely like this..by description is a bartholin duct abscess. It makes sense because they do generally respond to antibiotics and so it would shrink some or go away during treatment for a vaginal infection.
I'd have this evaluated. It probably needs to be opened and drained. There is a very small chance of bartholin gland cancer in women over 40 so it should be evaluated.
Could it be a fistula? I am having terrible bladder and vaginla burning and much prssure in the rectum/anal area? I have had cyst-like or pimple-like bumps that do pop. That usually happens before the onset of a vaginal infection or right after my period.
absolutely..I hate to throw out less common things that people aren't going to understand, but yes it may. Fistulas are common with crohn's disease...so you might get a colonoscopy to see if there is a correlation with what is going on with you.
I guess the reason I ask is because sometimes I have what I thought was "water" that came out of my vagina or I have released gas from my vagina. Thought that was normal. I have a terrible backache and just had an MRI on my back and structurally I am okay. I guess I am wondering if there is relation between a fistula and a backache? I do get backaches from vaginal infections but not like this!
I don't think a fistula would cause that type of pain, but underlying bowel etiology could.
Gas, water, stool, etc from the vagina should be evaluated...no question.
