Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
I'm not able to take a phone call, but I think I may be able to help you on line.
How old are you?
How long have you had the lump?
Did you injure yourself down there?
If it's bleeding, is the blood able to drain freely? Thank you.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
what can this it be?? I've never had this happened before
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago
I suspect that the lump is a Bartholin duct cyst, which occurs when the opening to the Bartholin gland (there's one each side of the vaginal opening) gets plugged.
I'm not sure why it's bleeding. If it were filled with blood, the blood should drain out, and then it should disappear. A Bartholin cyst doesn't usually fill with blood.
It shouldn't be a hemorrhoid, since that's at the rectum.
A Bartholin cyst doesn't need treatment unless it's bothersome.
I would recommend seeing your doctor to figure it out.

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.
