Thank you for your patience.

It is likely that you have a Bartholin's cyst.

The Bartholin's glands are small glands on either side of the vaginal opening. Their ducts open into the vagina nd the secretions help lubricate the vagina. Sometimes, the duct can get blocked due to an infection or due to dead vaginal cells. If this happens, the secretions collect inside the gland to cause swelling and a lump is forned.

It is benign and easily treatable.

In many cases, antibiotics can help clear up an infection. Application of a hot pack on the area can cause the duct to open up and drain the secretions.

If this does not help, draining the gland and a carrying out a minor surgical procedure known as marsupialization can be done.

I hope this helps.
