Hello

I understand this can be of great concern. I am a double board certified US doctor and will help you with this.

This is most likely a Bartoulin cyst.

There is a gland there and it can get clogged.

You need to see the doctor: sometimes these can become very infected and abscess and need to be drained.

Use hot compresses in the meantime.
