I have noticed a lump the size of a grape on the outer left side of my clitoral hood; that was not there during the last two or three days. It is painless, hard, no irritation or color change, no strange or closed discharge. But it is huge and getting bigger every day. Any general idea of what it could be?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Depending on your description, there could be few possibilities:
Since it has been around for only a few days and not sore, I think it is just a retention cyst. Any gland around that place whose duct gets blocked may lead to an increase in the size of that gland resulting in cystic swelling.
Sometimes, it resolves on its own. And at times, when it does become infected, it will turn sore and become very painful. I suggest you visit a doctor as an absolute diagnosis is necessary. Your doctor may suggest removal of the lump depending on the symptoms.
