My age is 27 and I’m a female.
I found the lump last night and it is red and a tiny bit sore. I put some hydrocortisone cream on it which helped a little.
I haven’t seen a doctor yet and I did a sexual health test last week which came back all negative.
I’ll send a picture, it’s not very good and it’s difficult to capture

This is likely to be Skene's gland cyst.

Skene's glands are peri-urethral glands found in this region, occasionally their duct can become blocked leading to cyst formation.

They are benign cysts but can become infected leading to a lot of pain and discomfort.

It would be best to have this seen to by a doctor.
