Sounds like a normal: Sounds like a normal variation. The vaginal opening and the labia can have different appearances and still be normal. Just like having different noses, or eye color. A gynecologist would need to do an exam, probably just looking at the skin at the opening to be able to tell you if it's a normal variant, or something else.

A Bartholin's Cyst: It is very ikely that you have a barthoin's cyst--it is typically not an infection but can be caused by infection which blocks the gland/duct, thus collection of fluid (swelling) to cause the "bump." this can be size of a pea up size of an egg. Simple incision may do the job, but if infected, antibiotic is needed and cyst may need to be excised. Consult your doc. Good luck.
