Hello, I was wondering whether anyone else who has had a confirmed bartholins cyst could possibly share your option....
I'm 23 and noticed a small egg like lump just inside my vagina one evening whilst in the bath. I can just about feel it on the outside but when I feel inside, there's a definite squishy round lump. It's painless but I've started to feel as though I'm losing 'tone' during intercourse with my husband.
I panicked and went to see the doctor who didn't even examine me, just sent me away and told me that it wasn't anything to worry about and that I'm too young to have cancer.....
2 months later, the lump was still there so I returned and saw a female doctor who did a quick examination. She said that the 'lump' is in a bit of a strange place and that she doesn't think that it's anything sinister and is probably just a cyst and that the lump may always be there...
2 months on and the lump is still there. It's annoying me and I'm getting a little itchy down below. It doesn't hurt and hasn't increased in size but I can still feel a definite lump.
I'm worrying myself sick. I'm crying myself to sleep at night thinking that I have cancer after reading forums online.
All of the info I've read regarding cysts make it sound as though the cyst is like a spot... But the skin on top of the lump is very thick and I honestly don't think I could pop it even if I wanted to!
Has anyone else had a cyst or problem like this?
I'd be very grateful to hear opinions of others who have had or are in similar situations!
