Please Help I'm Terrified

I have a relatively large dark bump within my vagina (on the labia minora) that itches, hurts, and as of today bleeds. I just went to the doctor a few days ago for thyroid issues and I don't want to go again soon unless I need to, so I've tried googling what the bump could be and all that really seems to match is vaginal cancer. I'm only 15 and I'm terrified that I may have cancer. I'm still a virgin so it's also doubtful that it could be something sexually transmitted.

If this sounds cancerous, please let me know. I made this account today just so I could try to rule out what I fear most.

I'm sorry you are having issues dear, and I know you don't want to see a doctor again so soon.  But, have you talked with your mom about this?  I think you should go ahead and call your doctor tomorrow and tell them just what you've told us.  Maybe they will then try to get you in sooner rather than later, but if it was me, I'd go ahead and get it checked out if for no other reason than to get it taken care of, cancer or not.  As a side note, and I'm not suggesting this is true with you at all, but oral sex can transmit std's also, including come to find out, the HPV virus.

Okay, thank you for the advice. However I've never really been in a relationship before (unless you count those in pre-school) so I've never had sexual interaction at all. I will talk to my mom about it tomorrow though.

Again, thank you.

Hi You are very brave to have made this first step EARLY INTERVENTION are the buzz words to remember. Having a doctor ask you all sorts of questions and maybe doing an invasive internal examination is something none of us enjoy but the sooner you get in there the sooner your mind will be put to rest. The lump could be anyone of a number of harmless things. It doesn't have to be sexually related. So bite the bullet tell mum and have it looked at if for no other reason to put your mind at ease. In the unlikely event it is something nasty you can start a treatment plan. I did and am still going strong ten years later. Good luck I would be pleased if you let me know the result Ian b
