In brief: MANY POSSIBILITIES

It could be a simple skin lesion, cyst, or even a genetal wart.
See your gyn!

Also could be a Bartholin's gland or Skene's gland cyst. Agree with seeing a GYN doctor

In brief: Likely a cyst

At age 25, a hard bump just inside the vaginal opening is most likely a cyst due to blocked gland.
Things your gyne will want to know- is it painful?, changing in size? Any discharge? New sexual partner? Always best to have it checked by your gyne.

In brief: See your MD

It is difficult to make a diagnosis without a physical exam. However, any lesion in the genital area could potentially be a sexually transmitted disease.
Other condition such as tumor also has to be ruled out. See your gynecologist for further evaluation and treatment accordingly.
