Question: I found a lump in my vagina? Brooke

Answer: Dear Brooke,

A lump in the vagina could be a vaginal cyst and usually feels like a soft lump in the vaginal wall or protruding from it. Vaginal cysts can result in discomfort during sexual intercourse.

During a routing exam, an ob-gyn can diagnose a cyst. Cysts are usually harmless but sometimes may have to be surgically removed.

The lump can also be caused by a vaginal prolapse which is a weakness of the supporting structures of the uterus, pelvic floor and vagina. In this case lumps are usually found at the entrance to the vagina, the cervix, or the front and back walls of the vagina which have prolapsed down through the entrance to the vagina.
