Lump on side of vagina
dear gynaedoc
yesterday I felt a lump(voel soos n klier) on the side of my vagina, I know that sex have been a bit painful on entering the last couple of days, and thats where the lump is, next to the penetration area. Could this just be a result of that or could it be more serious.

It could be a Bartholin's cyst. Have it checked out by your doctor.
