I have a bump in between my vagina and anus. It is about the size of a push pin head, red on the skin and swollen out with a white tip. I also have a 1/4 (approx) cut on the side of my clitoris. I have been celibate over a year, but last Nov. I had my cervix removed entirely due to a large (benign) tumor. The Dr also found pre cancerous cells on my labia which he removed and then stitched up. The cut appeared approx 3 months after surgery and the bump has been there for 2 months. My entire vagina is swollen, I have oderless discharge, and the bump is extremely sensitive to touch (I can barely wash/wipe-I have to just hold the cloth there). Can an OBGYN answer this PLEASE?

this is likely to be an abscess or cyst which may require incision and drainage along with antibiotics. you should use warm compress and use warm water sitz bath with plenty of epsom salt. please see your doctor.take advil/aleeve for pain.

what about the cut? and also what about the swelling?
Doctor: Dr. Salar, Doctor replied 9 years ago
the swelling is likely to be due to infection of the surrounding area. the cut can be break in skin. physical exam is needed to confirm this.

Relist: Answer quality.
The answer I got was something I could have guessed (in fact, I already knew it was most likely the answer he gave, just using common sense)...he wasn't specific re types it could be, if it was related to my surgery/condition, he told me to go see a Dr...isn't that what this is for? To know if you need to actually go to a Dr or not? I wanted something specific that could be the cause, not a general info answer I could get for free on webmd

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
