Probably not to: worry, but you'd obviously need an exam to say what's up. Good wishes.

Common: It is probably a portion of the hymen, however it would require a physical exam to be sure - see your doctor or ask about it during your next annual exam.

All are different: Just like human faces and personalities, genitals are also varied in appearance from person to person, and no two are exactly alike. If you are having no problems such as pain, itching/irritation, or an abnormal vaginal discharge, then what you are describing sounds normal. It's a healthy practice to be familiar with your own body, so great question.

GYN exam: Your women's health provider will need to see you for a face to face exam. This will determine what the tissue it might be that you are describing. It is important for you to seek this care as soon as she possibly can.
