Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had a lump in my groin, which I pushed, and it popped. Now I have a small hole near my vaginal opening which leaks yellow clear stringy discharge and also a small amount of blood if I push where the lump used to be. I have had this a couple of months now what could it be? There is no pain. I currently have a copper coil, my height is 5'8, and weight 147 lbs, and in good health.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The opening is your urethra. The yellowish discharge and blood tinged discharge is coming from urethral diverticulum which is an outpouching of the urethra. It is not infection although you see stuff that looks like pus. The treatment would be surgical removal of the diverticulum. I would recommend you to consult with a urologist.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
