Bartholin cyst: What you described suggests a Bartholin cyst, due to blockage of the duct of gland normally present at the opening of the vagina. It is of no concern, unless it gets infected. Shaving your private parts is not a good idea and it makes you more likely to get infection.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
