Hi and welcome to the site. My name is***** hope I'm able to provide some helpful medical information for you today.
It would be most helpful to see an image of it. Is it possible for you to take a photo and attach it using the paperclip icon on the screen?

no I cannot take a picture
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. C., Board Certified replied 3 years ago
Ok, in that case tell me how long it's been there? How big is it exactly (compare it to a dime)? Does it hurt or have any sensation at all? Is it exactly red? or purple? What is the shape? Perfectly round?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
perhaps I should go to my physician tomorrow.
for a couple of days it is oval in shape, it burns some and is more purple than red
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. C., Board Certified replied 3 years ago
it would be best to have it seen in person if unable to provide a photo. Purple and ovoid, it probably is nothing serious but a collection of blood under the skin.
Anything else I can help with today?

not quite as big as a pecan but that shape
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No thanks I will go tot he doctor tomorrow
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. C., Board Certified replied 3 years ago
That's pretty big size. It may be a varicose vein possibly. There aren't that many things that are purplish. Purple usually mean blood filled.
It's not likely to be anything terribly serious such as a cancer or sexually transmitted disease though. So I hope that's reassuring.
Is it soft? Can you push it down and make it almost go away?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
