Since how long you have this spot? Is this painful or itchy? Regards

Not itchy,not painful. I don't know how long they've been there. Not more than a year though (not sure).
many spots on both sides. Ive been wearing pads for about 3 years, for leaky urine.

Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. As per your description, there are few possibilities like cyst, swelling of blood vessel, genital wart, syphilis etc. If you are worried about something like herpes or cancer, I reassure you that there is no such possibility because cancer specially doesn't stay at the same size for this much long. If it was cancer, it would have grown significantly larger even in one month. You should see a dermatologist at this stage and should get your treatment done as per cause but I reassure you that you don't need to be stressed about anything serious. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. Regards
