Hi, I have looked around the site and have not found the answer to my question, or shall I say, an opinion. If it's here and I just didn't look good enough, I apologize in advance.

I have a lump, that is very, very sore and seems to be getting bigger everyday, in my vagina. I know it *isn't* an STD, isn't even a possibility. I just wanted to get some opinions on what it could be. I know you can't diagnose anything...I'm just looking for opinions because there is no way for me to go to a doctor and it has me worried.

there is a way for you to see a doctor. tell your mother or father that there's something wrong with you and you need to see a doc. esp if you know you've done nothing that could get you in any trouble with your folks, it'll be okay to ask them for help.

or go to planned parenthood (look it up in the phone book or try and go in for a checkup.

sore and lumpy are a bad combination, and just asking us what it is isn't gonna take care of it. is it actually in the vagina? a lot of readers are kinda fuzzy with terms. the vagina itself in the tube inside your body. the region outside that is your vulva. Pink Parts ? Female Sexual Anatomy
for diagrams and info about anatomy.

Btw, if you haven't been to the doctor, the only way you can possibly know that it absolutely isn't an STD is if you've spent your entire life living alone inside a bubble. Sexually transmitted diseases are often transmitted sexually, but that in no way means that they can only be transmitted sexually. Sometimes things can be transmitted through totally non-sexual means.
