Your best bet would be to show your gynecologist who'll be able to take a look and reassure you. It seems like you've been sexually active for a while? Have you seen a gyn before and had an STI test? You don't need to tell your mom that you're going to see them and everything you talk about will be kept confidential.

I'm confused: a pap smear is usually going to be part of STI tests. STI testing tends to involve blood tests, urine tests, a visual exam and a pap smear.

I would highly recommend seeing your Dr because, even if we were Drs, there is no way this can be diagnosed via the internet.

Also, you said that you are scared of telling your mom. Do you feel that she would not be supportive? If that is true, you do not have to tell your mom anything that you don't want to; especially since you are a legal adult. On the other hand, if you have the type of relationship where she would be supportive or if there is someone else you trust, they may be a help to you while you are having things checked.

I would suggest that you simply tell your mom that you discovered something that has you scared and go from there.
I would suggest that the sooner you can schedule an appointment, the sooner you could know some answers and hopefully be able to relax or calm down because (if needed) it is being taken care of. [Smile]

Just FYI, if you only had a blood test, you have not been tested for all STIs. So, when you have your GYN appointment, I'd ask about getting a full STI panel, too, okay?
