Question Asked:

"Good evening doc. I Have these very disturbing strong lumps on the surface of my vagina and they have been there for more than 7 years. I visited the hospital 3 years ago and the doctor treated it by injecting on them daily for a week. After a while, they started protruding again. What do I do please because I feel so ashamed taking off my clothes before my friends. "

    Hello. I understand how embarrassing this situation may be. I would like to know a bit more about the lumps, do they feel firm or soft? What's their sizes? Are they constantly there or you can press them in? Does it feel like a seed or like there's fluid inside?

    The lumps are very firm and different in sizes- small, medium and big. They have been constantly there and new ones keep coming up. There is no fluid inside, they feel like seeds.

    Hello. From your description and the fact that they seemed to have left for a while, there is a possibility it is lymph nodes which may signify you have an infection around your pelvic area or somewhere else. However, to get an objective assessment you can't shy away from seeing a doctor. We can help get one if you send a mail to findadoctor@kangpe.com. Do take care.

    Please what is lymph nodes? I have browsed it but I am not able to understand the medical terms used. can u explain the meaning the way a lay man can understand please?
    Dr. Gabriel A answered:

    let me put it like this. When there's an infection, the body has a special army it sends to fight it. As the army fights it, they collect the prisoners and put in cells called lymph nodes.If the army wins the war against the infection the prisoners in the lymph nodes are eventually cleared. If not, the body's army continues to fight and puts prisoners in the lymph nodes. So what I'm saying is probably there's still an infection or ailment that has not been totally cleared by your body's defence. Hope this is clear?

    My limit is till Tuesday 7pm. Once in a while, I have this discharge from my nipples when they itch me and I scratch them. Please what are the causes of this and solutions to it?

    okay. If you're not pregnant or breastfeeding, it may be due to excess of a hormone called prolactin. Combining with your previous complaint, I will strongly advice you see a gynaecologist.

    ok like I told you, I sent a mail to askadoctor@kangpe.com and I was directed to ask you the specific specialist I am required to see so they can take it up from there.

    I would prefer you to see a gynaecologist because of the breast symptoms and the pelvic symptoms. Do take care.
