Lump between urethra and vagina

Hi, I'm 22 years old. Just over a year ago I noticed a little fleshy lump near the entrance of my vagina. I was a virgin at the time and I was concerned, so I went to the doctor and she said it was probably just excess tissue and was nothing to worry about. This is how I can be sure it's not STI-related as it was present before I became sexually active. 

Since then I have become sexually active and I have noticed that the lump has become bigger. I went to the doctor the other day and they referred me to a gynaecologist. 

It doesn't hurt, I can't feel it, but it's very noticeable from the right angle. My sexual partners haven't mentioned it, and when I brought it up with one guy he didn't seem bothered by it. 

I've just tried taking some pictures to get a better look. There's a bit that sticks out (which I noticed initially) but in it's entirety it seems to partially cover my urethra and extends into the vaginal opening. I have no trouble urinating. I do find that inserting sex toys into my vagina can sometimes be slightly painful but i was unsure if this was due to that or just because I have a small vagina. 

I wouldn't be so concerned if it hadn't gotten bigger since I started having sex. I've actually only had sex four times so if it continues to grow each time I'm going to be worried. 

I have a gynaecology appointment this month, but can anyone tell me if they've got anything similar and if it's anything to worry about?

I'll attach photos below.  Sorry, they're a bit gross.
