lump in the mons pubis


    
Asked by Unregistered (Female; 21; YES ) on Mon 07, Jun 2010 06:16pm

i am a 21 year old female. i had this palpable mass iN my mons pubis. If you could see it externally, you wouldn't find anything unusual until you palpate it. you will feel the pea size mass which is painless but hard to touch. It seems like it is beneath the skin. the mass is not painful or anything. it doesnt cause me any discomfort too. I dont have any gross vaginal discharge too. i dont think its a bartholin's cyst since the lump is not near the bartholins gland. it is in the mons pubis. beneath the skin. couldn't be seen externally but can be palpated. it goes with the skin when the skin is pulled out.

Hi, This could be a Bartholin's abscess or cyst. There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholinís glands. These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a painless, hard swelling. In such cases, antibiotics may be helpful, or surgical treatment might be required. Other possibilities are boil, sebaceous cysts, etc. The only way to know the confirmed cause is a clinical examination by an OBG specialist. Regards.
