swollen vaginal gland

I had what I felt was a yeast infection but I also had a lump/swollen area on the side. I went to the doctor a little over 2 weeks ago. They examined me and I got a prescription to take care of that. I told them about the swollen area and she looked at it and told me it was just a swollen gland (which I didn't know I had glands in the first place there!) Well she said it would go away on it's own not to mess with it. I still have it today. This worries me that it is more. I'm going back next week. I was wondering if anyone know anything about something like this, could share any information, or where I could look for more information concerning this.

Thank you!

Re: swollen vaginal gland

well first of all if your doctor examined you and told you that it is ok... you should go with that. glands get swollen all the time for various reasons and because yours is swollen there, it is constantly aggrivated (walking, sitting, under-wear rubbing) so it has a harder time of going away. IF it is still there in 2 weeks, i would report back to your doctor. I WOULD NOT go looking for information on the internet because without the aide of a medical professional, you may convince yourself that you have something that you don't. i know we get so aware of our bodies that we notice everything. just be aware that is is there and re-check ok?
