Lumps in labia majora

Hi, I'm a 19-year-old, non-sexually active female.
I have several lumps in my labia majora. When held flat, they press against the skin and look white. They are irregularly shaped, on both inner sides of my labia majora, they spread througout both, and are not painful or irritating in any way.
I am concerned that this could be a problem, and am looking for some insight. I realize I should see a gynecologist, but I'd like some base information beforehand.

Re: Lumps in labia majora

Sounds like Fordyce Granules, small white bumps that can appear on the lips and on the skin of the genitals.
Look up "Fordyce Granules" or "Fordyce Spots" and see if the pictures look like what you have.
If so, it's common and completely normal and harmless.
Many women have these tiny bumps on their labia, and many men have it on their genitals as well, and many people of both sexes even have it on their lips.
