It’s about 4 inches or so and it feels like it’s underneath and is causing the bottom of the lip up to where the butt cheek starts to feel swollen. It’s hard to walk and sit
Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 6 months ago
This sounds like a bartholins gland cyst. Sometimes using hot compresses can help with the pain and swelling. You will want to make a gyn appt. they usually need to be drained surgically

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
