It’s not noticeable to camera you can only feel it to touch but I am also having other symptoms in conjunction to the lump like burning when peeing, itching, lots of milky discharge, and a little tear in the vagina( I believe was self inflicted) helppp

Thank you very much

DO you have history of sexual contact or STD ?

Do you have lymph nodes on both the sides?

Is the lump painful or causing the skin above to become red

Is the lump single multiple soft or stone hard?

NO history of std.
it’s just on the left side.
Not painful or red.
It isn’t stone hard, but it isn’t exactly soft either.
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 4 months ago

Since you have other symptoms like burning when peeing , itching , lots of milky discharge and a little tear in the vagina , you seem to have got a connected inflammation of the lymph node that is causing the lump in the groin. These swellings are neither hard nor soft. Hard lumps indicate malignancy soft lumps indicate lipomas or fatty tissues.

Rubbery lumps indicate acute or chronic inflammation like what you have got of the vaginal area.

I would suggest you to treat the primary vaginal infection with the intake of fluconazole anti fungal medication for 15 days.

You should apply clean the area of the vagina with Sebamed Intimate feminine wash.

You should also take a oral crocin to reduce the inflammation around this lump that you mention,.

In case the lump does not go down in size or reduce in 3 weeks you would need to investigate it .

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

Regards

Dr Pravin

as of right now you don’t think it to be a std? It sti? possibly Herpes? because when I googled my symptoms that’s what I was getting
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 4 months ago

No , this does not sound like an STD.

You dont have herpes either as herpes presents as multiple erosions with blisters and they are very painful.

This sounds like a fungal infection that has become a little aggravated and causing the lymph nodes to swell up.

You should treat it as above and the problem would go away.

regards
