Customer Question

While showering this morning, I noticed a bump on the right labia side. It did not hurt, burn, or itch. Once I was able to look I saw two blister- like growths,very dark red or black. The upper one was more raised and hard.
I am 67 years old and celibate but do use a vibrator.
The blisters are evenly round, no irregularity as I was checking for melanmona possibly.
Should I open it?

I would not open it.

A hard red/black growth could possibly be a melanoma.

It's hard to know much without looking at the blister/growths, but I think a doctor needs to check them. If there is any question, then they can be removed and sent for microscopic exam. Best wishes.
