If you find a bump, than do not panic. If the bump on the vagina is painful, than it could be a Bartolin gland. This is quite common condition and it can be treated with coatings. In case the pain is severe visit a doctor.

There is another type of bump that happens due to clogged pores and ducts. They are not dangerous as well, but if they are painful you must visit a doctor.
