In brief: = Bartholin's cyst

This may be a lesion called a bartholin's cyst which should be treated by your gynecologist.
It could also be another lesion such as a mucous cyst or other entity.

This is treated by surgical removal. This is called surgical "excision" and can sometimes be performed in the clinic, or outpatient surgical center.

In brief: Have it examined

Lots of things cause cysts.
A true sebaceous cyst usually needs excision. Have it examined. Warm compresses help every 2-4 hours. Sitz baths (fill tub with warm water and soak) will help. Skin trauma is different. Can be caused by sex, tampons or infection. If its from sex, use a lubricant during intercourse to keep from drying out. But, really, get it looked at.
