I was just masturbating and I found a small bump to the left of my urethra. It is about the size of a pea and hard. I do not think this was there yesterday. What should I do?

Like any other part of our body, the skin on the vulva can be prone to pimples, ingrown hairs, and other blemishes.
Does this area hurt when you touch it?
Any change in the body should be checked out by a health care professional, but doesn't necessarily have to be seen as an emergency. If this doesn't go away or show signs of healing within the next day or two I'd definitely suggest having a health care provider look at it.
How does that sound?
