I have a brownish grey hard piece of something in my vagina.

Customer Question
It's attached so I can't...
I have a brownish grey hard piece of something in my vagina. It's attached so I can't pull it out. There's a little room to the front of it and in the back of it is my vaginal canal. I am mortified. What could this be? I have an appointment scheduled for tomorrow, but I am freaking out.

No. It's firm but appears to be pliable. I pulled a tiny piece of it off. I have a picture too

It's graphic. Uploading now. I zoomed in. And it's definitely not an old tampon

Got it--thanks

How long has it been there?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm not sure. I was sexually inactive for about 8 years until recently. I began agaim about a month ago. Just noticed it yesterday. Maybe its a tissue growth or something?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Chip, General practice replied 1 year ago

OK

It doesn't look like any kind of cancer

It looks like a hypertrophy of your vaginal wall and likely it's a benign cystic type of lesion

Nothing too serious but most likely it'll require surgery to remove

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
