    Hello ladies, After noticing a hard, painful lump deep in my left labia in August/15 I decided to see my family doctor early september. He seemed stumped right away, but said it might be an infected bartholin cyst even though it's not showing typical symptoms. So he put me on antibiotics (at the time I knew I should have asked for a gynaecology ref and further investigation) but I took the antiobiotics. Unfortuna...

      Hello everyone, I hope this finds you well. I posted a couple months back regarding an atypical, hard, tender lump in my left labia. After seeing two specialists we have decided to remove the gland and/or wherever the lump is. They are not sure what it is, and will not know until they have it removed. My surgery is in the morning. Would be interested in hearing people's experiences with gland removal, rec...

          thank you for your reply. I am sorry that you have had to go through all of that. I genuinely wish you all the best. I am going for an ultrasound soon, and will be pushing for a biopsy/second opinion. After reading everyone's stories, I don't think this is something to take lightly, and will encourage everyone to push for answers and not be afraid to fight for it. take care, lauren

            Hi there. Not sure this will even get to you as so much time has passed, but by the sounds of it I am experiencing the same thing you did... Was wondering what your diagnosis was? Hope all is well. I, too, have a large, hard lump to the left of vaginal opening, but is not characteristic of a cyst or seem to be in the bartholin gland. My doctor is stumped as well, and I am waiting to see a gynaecologist. Was hopi...
