tmi question

Okay, so I have a bump near down there.

I figured it was just a cyst. It is a pretty good size as far as bumps go but has never bothered me. It has always been hard and is still hard. I left it alone and went about my business.

However, with my last period the bump became sore and is now red. It has been there for several months now.

Since it didn't bother me I didn't see the need to go running to the doctor.

I have an appt on Wednesday for cancer testing, woo. So, I was going to ask about it then.

But with all the information my mom and grandma just laid all this new information on me, I am scared.


Anybody else ever have anything like this?

I have to ask, where is this bump located at?

I ask because I had a cyst....actually, I had what I thought was 2 but the doc said there was 3 or 4 of them. They were on my inner labia on the right side. I asked about them and since they weren't bothering me doc said not to worry about them. But if they started bothering me, let him know and he would take care of them. I had had them for years and years without anything bothering me. Then a few months ago, they started bothering me and getting a lil bigger. So I talked to my OB/GYN and he removed them. Pathology results came back with pre-cancerous cells....and I'm at a high risk for them turning into cancer. The pre-cancerous cells were not just in the cysts, but all down there and I could get more cysts at any time, and they could turn cancerous.

Bottom line, definitely get it looked at, tested and taken care of....because ya just never know.

No, its on the outside but below the hair line.

Since it was bothering Me so bad last night I put some neosporan on it and that helped a lot. Gonna do it again today.

But I am still gonna have it looked at
