Likely a cyst : It is possible that you have a small sebaceous cyst. These usually are asymptomatic unless they become infected or become really large. Also bartholin's cyst can occur near the entrance of the vagina. Cysts usually occur from blocked ducts causing secretions to build up. Best thing to do is to see your doctor if it does not improve or resolve in 2 weeks.

Large movable lump at top side of labia majora, not sore, not like a pimple or anything. Should I be concerned?

SEBACEOUS CYST: Usually, what you describe is a sebaceous cyst. It is of no concern unless it is a cosmetic issue and then minor surgery will fix it. These are very common on the labia in women and the scrotum of men.
