Hi a few issues I was trying to see if my hymen was intact and I realized that 1. I couldn't find a vaginal opening like in these diagrams (it's like bio drawings not real photos!) http://www.healthystrokes.com/hymengallery.html, I only saw the tiny urethra hole! I read somewhere that I can't see the hole cause it's the hymen blocking it? 2. There was this strange looking bump that doesnt appear in the diagrams and it was like protruding from the bottom, like below what's marked out as the hymen!

Do you have periods yet? If so, that means your hymen can't be completely intact because the blood is coming out of your vagina. As well, having a completely intact hymen is very rare as it will usually wear away by itself.
It's difficult to tell from a written description what your bump might be so it's probably best to ask a nurse or GYN doctor to have a look for you and also point out your vaginal opening.
