No it doesn't have any of them. It's under the skin but not painful at all. It's tiny. Like a pea.It's not changed but I only noticed it 4 days ago.I haven't ever had one. Due to abuse I am worried to. I have had blood tests in the past and I had a scan for a cyst last year.No I don't have any medical problems or take any medication
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It's difficult to describe where it is but it's under the skin but not inside the vagina or on the holes. It's at the start of the clitirous area
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Thanks

How long will an answer take round about
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 9 months ago.

Thank you for that additional information.

Sorry for the delay in replying...I'm oncall this week and have been in the operating room for the last 6 hours...

There are a couple of possibilities for what could be causing this pea sized bump on your clitirous. Given that it is not painful and you are not sexually active the most likely culprit is a build up of dead skin cells under the hood of this area.

It might also be a Sebaceous cyst.

You could try hot compresses and sitz baths to see if this resolves the issue. But, of course, the best thing way to know what exactly is going on would be to have an exam by your OB/GYN.

The good news?

I do not believe this is anything serious such as a tumor, wart or STD given what you have posted.

Does this make sense to you?

Have a good weekend,

Dr. Rick MD FACS

Thank you.
I was more concerned because it's inside the area as in under the skin not on it. Does that make any difference ?
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 9 months ago.

Nope :)

A visit to your OB/GYN will quickly and easily get to the root of the problem

Have a good weekend
