Bartholins Duct Cyst: This sounds like a Bartholin's duct cyst. You need to go see your fp or gyn and get a pelvic exam . They can treat this cyst for you.

Agree with Dr. J: What you described is consistent with bartholin cyst/abscess. See your doctor to ascertain if the remaining lesion needs to be excised. Get HPV vaccine.
