I think I have a cyst but I’m not sure. I have a lump probably the size of a walnut, I think it’s towards the bottom of my left labia and I can feel swelling just inside my vagina. There is a definite lump, quite firm to touch, and a whole lot more swelling that goes all the way down to my butt cheek. It’s tender to touch, the lump has doubled in size since yesterday and is making me rather uncomfortable. I saw a GP today who said it was not a cyst but just swelling. He prescribed antibiotics, panadeine forte and Ibuprofen. I honestly think he just wanted me to go away and never come back. Understandable really, I was horrified having to go there. I’ve tried hot baths and putting a hot towel on it, but it hasn’t done anything yet. Does this sound like a Bartholin cyst? Or is the dr right? I have an appointment with my usual GP on Monday to get a second opinion, in case this monstrosity hasn’t disappeared by then. Thanks in advance.
