I have a lump in my labia. I noticed it about 8 years ago…

Customer Question
Hi, I have a lump...
Hi, I have a lump in my labia. I noticed it about 8 years ago and it has grown over time. It is larger now and has always been squishy and moveable and is not painful. My Pap smears have always been normal. I had hpv about 5 years ago but I don’t have it anymore. My obgyn has seen the lump every time I go in and she is sure that it is a lipoma and tells me it’s not a sarcoma. But she has never done a scan or biopsy. After all this time and because it has grown in size should I insist something else be done or just trust and be ok with what she tells me?

No I do not.

Thank you for the clarification.

From the history that you have mentioned , it is ok for your to be rest assured .

The lump that you mentioned does sound like a lipoma which are known to increase in size over years.

It does not sound like you have a liposarcoma because you would have presented with other symptoms like pain , discomfort.

If she is examining it annually that is safe and more than enough.

No need to get a scan or a biopsy

Regards

Dr Pravin
