Question What could this be?

I hate writing this kind of thing because frankly I find it embarrassing, but I found something a bit worrying today and I'd like some advice/reassurance.

So today as I was going to shower I found a strange pimple like thing on my vagina on the right side close to the lip. I felt it and it felt round so I assumed that it was a pimple, but I showed it to my mother anyway, and she said it looked like a "long welt". She also said that it was light pink in color. Being a hypochondriac I immediately became afraid that it was cancer, but it gets irritated when you mess with it or splash water on it, and cancer doesn't ger irritated, does it? So does anyone have any idea what this could be, and is it something to worry about? Thanks in advance to all who reply.

Re: What could this be?

First, since you're very worried about it being cancer already, I'd go check it out with the doctor or call some kind of help-line at your hospital and just talk about it with a nurse on the phone.

I get these every few months too. I used to have really bad acne, and I know any dermatologist would slap my hand for it, but I can't help but pop them. The ones "down there" usually turn out to be something like a blood blister. How they happen, I have no idea, and I do plan on asking my own doctor next time I'm there.

I read on a thread here earlier about someone with the same question. One response was that acne can come up anywhere on your body and if it feels, looks, and acts like a pimple, its probably just a pimple.
