Concerned about lump found in vagina

10 Oct 2021 21:11

Hello, I'm 16 years old and recently found a lump in my vaginal opening, i have had no bleeding, or stomach pain or anything, I have booked an appointment with my GP he has booked it as non urgent, but I am still terrified. I haven't told my parents about this. My friend is coming with me to the appointment. But has anyone else had what I have? Or know what it could be?

Hello Tracey.xo

I'm sorry to hear that you've recently found a lump. It's understandable that you're feeling anxious but it's good to know that you already have a GP appointment arranged. Hopefully, they will be able to give you some reassurance soon. 

We know how difficult it can be waiting for answers. If you'd like to have a chat with one of our team of nurses you're most welcome to call them on 0808 800 4040, Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm. I'm sure they will be happy to offer any advice and support that they can. 

Best wishes,

Hello, thank you very much for that. Do you think this lump could be cancerous or just a cyst?
