Mass Coming Out of Vaginal Opening

There are various causes that may lead to the protrusion of tissue through vaginal orifice. Here are some important ones:

Bartholin’s Cyst

On either side of the vaginal opening are present small lubricating glands called bartholin’s glands.

They function by secreting a lubricating fluid which keeps the vagina moist and wet, preventing friction inside it.

When the mouth of any of these glands becomes blocked, the secretion keep accumulating inside it and a bartholin’s cyst develops. This cyst is a painless lump or swelling present at the vaginal opening.

This cystic lump usually gives no trouble. It may regress on its own in due course of time.

Bartholin’s Abscess

Rarely, a bartholin’s cyst may become infected to give rise to a pus filled lump called the bartholin’s abscess. The genital area is exposed to a variety of infective bugs, like E coli, all STD bugs (chlamydia etc.). Any of these may be the cause of these abscess.

This abscess is very painful, and typically present at the opening of the vagina.

It may grow in size, causing excruciating pain. It may also break in to the near by vaginal skin or mucosa, complicating the picture even more.

These abscesses need to be drained surgically. An antibiotic cover is usually given during the procedure.

Cystocele (Fallen Bladder)

When the muscles of the pelvic floor becomes weak or damaged, as during child birth, the bladder may sort of fall into the vagina. This appears as a large bulge in the anterior (front) vaginal wall.

The bulge may be big enough to come out of the vaginal opening as a small rounded lump.

If pressed, one may get a sensation to urinate.

Cystocele is painless to touch. Patient may feel a sagging sensation down there. She may have pain after standing for long hours.

Treatment is strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, either by exercises or surgically.

Uterine Prolapse

This is a condition where the womb falls into the vagina. This occurs due to weakening of the ligaments and musculature supporting the uterus.

The prolapse is categorized into four types, depending upon the degree of falling of the uterus.

First degree is where the uterus falls into the upper part of the vagina only.

Second degree is the one where the uterus prolapses upto the lower part of the vagina.

Third degree is where the uterus prolapses further down, so that a part of it is visible outside the vagina as a lump coming out of it. This is also called procidentia.

Fourth degree is where the uterus is fully coming out of the vaginal opening.

Enterocele

When the muscular wall between the vagina and the intestines weaken. a part of the bowels may bulge from inside the vagina. This is called an enterocele.

Bowel sounds may be auscultated form over the enterocele.

Rectocele

When the rectum falls into the vagina, a lump appears in the posterior (back) vaginal wall. This is called the rectocele. It may come out of the vaginal opening in the form of a lump.

Medical Advice (Q&As) on “Lump Coming Out From the Vagina

  1. Yachi

    Hi there. I am a 28 years old woman. I have 3 problems:
    1. Last year I developed something that looks like a water sack (a little big) near the opening of my vagina. It swells up sometimes and that’s when it makes me uncomfortable when sitting or when wearing pants.I dried it once but it still swells up. It’s just hanging there.
    2. Recently I again developed a hard pimple just above the water sack structure, it’s hard, feels like a lymph node but it’s painful when you touch it. I have had this before (2002), were treated but kept on coming and disappearing. Blood testing for STDs was done even this year August but nothing was found.
    3. I also have a lump in my breast, went to the cancer association clinic twice for check up and they said only to go back when it starts growing. I am worried about my health.

        I have not seen the gyne about it yet, I am afraid it might be genital warts (looked it up on the Internet, have seen similar images to what I have). I do not know what to do, what is your suggestion about the lump that I have in my breast?

        1. Buddy M.D. Post author

          A small lump which is soft or firm to touch and is freely movable within the breast tissue is not worrisome. It may be a cluster of fibrous tissue.

          You need to worry only if the lump grows in size or becomes attached to the underlying tissue, that is not mobile. Or if it becomes hard to touch.

    I have a boil on my vulvar, went to see a surgeon for removal today, however, she would like me to see an oncologist gynocologist as she thinks this could be cancerous. The size is about a quarter of an inch or more. It continues to drain and since it burst, I don’t have as much discomfort. When it burst, the odor was terrible. I waited all day for the surgeon to call me as she was going to make me an appointment but nothing yet. I am very concerned that I will have to wait and this boil is open to many germs. Any advice? If this is malignant, what are the chances it has spread, hypothetically speaking?

    Thank you for your time.

      Clean the fluid coming out of the boil, each time it burst. You may use doctor’s alcohol or some antiseptic solution to wipe the nearby area each time.

      Malignancy would not spread through this fluid. It would spread inside your body, as this boil invades the underlying skin tissues.

      Try making an appointment with the oncologist at the earliest.

            It’s likely that your anterior vaginal wall is herniating out. This is common and the cause is physical stress, that include multiple child birth, standing for long hours, lifting heavy weight etc.

            Try Kegel’s exercises to strengthen the muscles of your pelvic floor. Avoid long standing hours, lifting heavy weight. If you have to stand for long, consider taking a break to sit or, if possible, lie down for 5- 10 minutes.

    I am 18 years old, 36.4 weeks pregnant and on lv 3 bedrest for possible early labor. Im 3cm dilated and my baby has descended to -1. Earlier today I had gotten a hand mirror and checked down there to make sure things were still good but at my vaginal opening there was a pink squishy ball about the size of a marble. It does not hurt or appear to have any secretions but it was never there before. It is located on the inside but poking out; slightly to my left and near the top of the opening. Please help me figure what this could be, I don’t wish to have anymore issues with my pregnancy, especially ones that risk major complications.

    so i wear a menstrual cup. last night, i went to empty my cup and reinserted it just fine. no problems. this morning i went to empty it again and there is a big lump on the side of my vagina? i thought the cup tilted sideways, but my cup was actually sitting behind this mass. i can insert my finger in my vagina, and pulled my cup out just fine, but now i am not bleeding anymore? I’ve only had my period for 3 days. usually i bleed a lot more than that. it doesn’t hurt, no smell, no discharge, no fever. i feel fine. i literally just went to take my cup out and i felt it.. maybe a cyst? can they form that fast and get that big, literally overnight? i had a baby last year.

        It’s likely to be a prolapse of your vaginal wall.

        Labor is a strenuous process. Though you delivered through C section, the musculature around the vaginal canal has suffered a lot of strain. You may understand this as a herniation.

        You need to visit a gyne for check up to reach an exact diagnosis and discuss its treatment.

        I find that I’ve developed a protruding tongue like thing in the opening of my vagina which is just above the rectum. It itches a lot. The itching problem is persisting since six months or so. Before, I had not noticed this but smelly discharge would occur often. For that I was given antibiotic and canesten ointment by my gynae. I fear because my died of breast cancer. Is it abnormal. I’m 34. Please suggest.

    Hi, I’m 20 and not pregnant. About five days ago, I began to feel and uncomfortable sensation right at the opening of my vagina that turned painful to the point of not being able to wear pants. This was accompanied by a constant need to pee and a burning sensation. Went to the doctor whom said it was a UTI, and took antibiotics for 6 days.
    Meanwhile, I have noticed my vaginal wall is swollen to the point of it closing up at times, and portrudes into a squishy almost bubbly uneven bump right at the entrance. The peeing sensation has not stopped either, no matter the medication nor the use of vaginal cream. I also constantly feel bloated. I’ve noticed more swelling each time I am aroused.
    What can this be?

      I’ve had this same problem over the past 3 months. Initial symptom was the severe vaginal swelling. UTI symptoms come and go with high levels of wbc with negative cultures. This bulging ball of flesh In the vaginal entrance becomes unbearably painful when these symptoms arise. Beginning my 5th course of antibiotics and waiting on referrals to both a urologist and gynaecologist. I’m curious Grace if you ever found out he cause of your symptoms. I’ve also been suffering from a vaginal tear that hasn’t healed over a 3 Monty period. All tests negative for that as well.

      Check if you have any itch, redness or pain down there? If not, there’s nothing to worry. This is just excessive amount of your normal discharge.

      You may get excess of discharge after sexual stimulation or if you’re nutritionally deficient or weak. There may be other reasons too. Need to be evaluated on check up.

    A small round ball of flesh appeared inside my vagina, right in the opening, about 2-3 years ago. It doesn’t protrude or ever “fall out”, nor is it normally sore. Recently, after intercourse, it’s becoming pretty swollen, and slightly tender. I’ve spoke with 3 different doctors/gyne, but they all say it’s “normal” even after explaining the swelling and fairly sudden appearance of it. Everything else is completely normal, no dryness issues, no other swelling, just that ball of flesh. I’m 27, no kids. What can this possibly be?

      Have you ever undergone any instrumentation inside your vaginal canal?
      How big is it? Does it disappear when you lie down? Does it come out when you stand for long hours or cough?

      Reply
      1. Concerned

        I haven’t.
        It’s about the size of a dime when it’s not swollen. When swollen, roughly the size of a quarter, maybe a bit larger.
        It doesn’t disappear or come out at all, it just sits there. Once it swells it of course gets closer the the opening, but never comes out. I can usually see it even when it’s not swollen.

          It’s likely to be a growth arising from the vaginal wall, may be a polyp. Such growths are usually not cancerous or serious any way. However, most of them can be surgically resected out.

    I’m 20 years old and today I had a sensation like something was stuck in my vagina/a sense of fullness, possibly like I had inserted a tampon wrong. I stuck my finger in to see if there was anything there and I felt a hard lump on the back wall of my Vagina, a bit bigger than a pea. I have never felt the lump before but I also don’t think I’ve stuck my finger that far before so I’m not sure if it’s been there a while. I have also had an increase in discharge but it’s been clear and slightly watery. I’m terrified it might be cancer! I’m also due to ovulate today if that’s important.

As I was trying to feel if they’re were more it was very difficult to get my finger inside, there appears to be a “mass of tissue” that feels rough to touch, kind of like a tongue. If I strain it pushes down further extremely close to the vaginal opening. I have to try to maneuver all around it to feel my cervix. I’m also experiencing lower back pain.

It hangs lowest and I am most aware of it when I am sitting on the toilet. I am 55, on Estrogen/progesterone for menopausal symptoms, not overweight and have had two vaginal deliveries. Is this something to worry about?

      Likely to be a prolapsed part of your vaginal wall. Such a prolapse may get formed from a weak portion over the wall. You need to do Kegels exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.

      Needs to be examined for diagnosis.

    Hi
    I’m 14 and I have a flesh/object hanging out of my v.
    It has been there for a while now. And it is kind of pink and wrinkly, there is no pain when I touch it or even squeeze it. and it doesn’t bleed. Is this normal?

      It’s likely to be a part of your vaginal wall. Absolutely normal. Nothing needs to be done.

    Hi I’m sixteen and I’ve felt a slight discomfort in my vagina for the past two days. I finally looked at it with a mirror and found a red ball coming out at the bottom of my vagina. It doesnt hurt when I touch it and I only feel discomfort when I stand up or walk around. I’ve had a cough for about a week too. I’m planning on going to urgent care tomorrow but what do you think it is?

      May be a part of your vaginal wall that has slightly prolapsed to give a bump. Prolonged cough has been likely to precipitate it.

      However, diagnosis requires a physical exam.

      You need to do Kegels exercises for correction, is case it’s your vaginal wall.

      Do let us know about the update after your visit to the urgent care.

    I’m 24. Today at 1st day of my period,while washing my private part i felt mass like protruding out from vagina. I thought it was blood clot and tried to pulled out but it wasn’t a clot. Is it normal or something serious?

      Likely to be a protruding part of you r lover vaginal wall. Happens Normally. Also, it’s likely to regress back with time.

      Avoid lifting heavy weight, prolonged standings. You may also do Kegels exercises to support healing.

    I am a 21 year virgin who has been to the gyno and urologist for what I thought was a prolapsed bladder. On the anterior wall of my vagina there appears to be a squishy sag. If I orgasm it gets hard and rigid, like a g spot would, however it is a larger span. My urologist said that my bladder is swollen and slightly irritated, but that it is not a prolapse. Doesn’t it sound like a prolapse, however? I am being sent for an ultrasound of my kidneys and bladder.

      It’s unlikely to be a prolapse. Anyhow, let’s wait for the ultrasound report to be sure.

      Any urinary symptoms, like pain, urgency or itching down there?

        No pain, burning or itching. There is higher frequency with an urge remaining even after I urinate. I’m urinating around 9 times a day, so nothing crazy but a little higher than usual.

          I got the ultrasounds today and the technician said there were no obvious issues that she could see. Obviously a radiologist will look further into the images, for more complicated problems.

    My ultrasound results came back totally normal. I am completely emptying my bladder, which is good. I think my doctor does not want to use the word prolapse because my bladder has not dropped into my vagina. Rather, it is simply resting on my vaginal wall due to weak pelvic floor muscles. Obviously I must strengthen my muscles or else it could slip through.

    I read online that women with prolapsed bladders find when they cough, if they insert a finger inside, they can feel the buldge push down as well. This just happened to me. Should I be concerned?

      Yes, that’s true. It’s actually your anterior (front portion of) vaginal wall tat protrude in to give the bulge. The anterior vaginal wall has the bladder wall lying adjacent to it.

    Is it normal to feel like something is blocking the vaginal entrance, especially when standing? It feels like there is something blocking the hole from the top wall of my vagina. Immediately at the enterance of my vagina there is like a section of skin above my vaginal hole (externally) which connects to my top vaginal wall (internally). That whole connected section is super soft and squishy. However, an inch inside feels a little bumpy, like what people say is a “g spot”. The whole area appears to sag slightly, to the point where it is hard to insert a finger while standing.

    Also, the bulge spans my whole inner top vaginal wall. Right near the enterance, however, it feels U-Shaped. There is edges to it. As it goes further back on the top wall, however, it is just a normal saggy bulge with no edges. This sounds like prolapse, no?

    The bulge is U-Shaped but I can’t tell if it’s just a normal part of my vaginal wall. When I push on the bulge, I can only push lightly before I feel my pubic area bones.

      Nothing is coming out of me but I cannot tell if that is only because I’m a virgin and therefore have a small vaginal hole.

    Kind of, but for the most part no. I do not feel a stronger or weaker urge but I do feel overall pressure on my pelvic area which produces an odd feeling. That feeling, I don’t think, encourages my urge to urinate.

    On the top vaginal wall, deeper inside it feels “normal” in the sense that it is just wet and smooth and raised up higher in a “rightful position”. Near the opening and also in a little bit, however, is harder and feels rigid and bumpy. I have to point my finger in a downward motion and while the area further back feels squishy, the area immediately in my enterance where it is rigid feels hard and definitely not squishy. I push and it feels like poking a brain and then if I push any harder it feels like I’m hitting bone. Further back, however, just feels really squishy and like there is no bone.

    Reply

      It feels like fitting anything inside of me would be impossible. Towards the back is squishy and could totally stretch. Right inside my vagina, on the top wall, the rigid area really won’t budge, it does not feel like it would stretch around a penis. I’m afraid this is like a prolapsed organ. I have my ultrasound and had no tumors or cysts, but then why is this initial top inner section so hard, unlike the rest on my vagina?

        Further commenting about what it is would be difficult without actual examination.

        Since you don’t have the urge to urinate after pushing it back, it’s unlikely to be your bladder. Appears to be something coming out of the vaginal wall itself, may be a part of it. It may be a hardened polyp, anterior wall prolapse or just a variation of normal vaginal wall.

    I’m 16, haven’t had my period yet and I’m a virgin. I don’t know if this is normal but I noticed I have a small roundish pink ball at just at the opening of my vagina and I’m not sure what it is. It hurts a lot if I put pressure on it with my finger but it doesn’t bother me other than that, I’ve had it for as long as I can remember but I realized that during health we didn’t talk about it and we covered everything in the vagina so it kind of made me wonder what it could be.

    Hello! I recently just became sexually active about a month a go. I am a 23 year old women. About 5ft tall 150lbs. Last night when cleaning myself prepping myself for my menstrual cycle. I noticed a light pink fleshy bulge starting come out of my vaginal opening. I’ve never had any children before and when touching it feels like my gspot. I was reading the article and I’ve set an appointment with a doctor already but wanted to know more

      This is very likely to be a part of the outer layer of your vaginal opening. Nothing to worry. Would come back in shape with time.

    I just inserted my left middle finger which is 3 1/2inch and I felt something tender, like a lump or something which I can’t really explain .
    Please I want to know if it is normal,
    Because sometime this year I went for scan and I was told that there is a thickness at my lower abdomen and I also went for culture test which said that I had a mild growth of staph and a moderate growth of candida which I took some medicines for.

    After having sexual intercourse with my husband tonight, i was sitting in the toilet and it felt like something was coming out of my vaginal opening. I stood up and then felt a small bulge barely coming out. I inserted my finger and could move the bulge and push it back into place, but then when i stood up i could feel it go back towards the opening again. There is no pain with it. I am 40 years old and have had two children, both vaginal births, last one being 15 years ago. Is this something i should be concerned about or be seen by a doctor for? Thank you.

      Likely to be a part of your vaginal wall sagging down. This is common at your age, as the tone of vaginal musculature drops down.

          Yes, it’s likely to help. Do it on a regular basis for results. Also, losing weight, if obese, would help.

    I am 23, have no children, am sexually active. I have a lump at my vaginal opening on the anterior wall. It starts a couple centimeters inside my vagina and pokes out of my vaginal opening. The skin covering it is rough, and when pressure is applied it feels hard. Can be painful during sex.

    While washing myself today in the shower, I felt a round lump partly protruding from my vagina. It felt like a small water balloon. No pain or discomfort. I am a 59 year old post menopausal woman. I delivered 5 children vaginally. I’m assuming this is some type of prolapse?

      Very likely to be prolapse. Diagnosis requires a physical exam.

    I notice a light pink-coloured ball like mass when I pull apart my lips and take a look at the vaginal opening. It is about 1-2 cm in diameter, and rests at the centre of my vaginal opening, like blocking it. It doesn’t hurt to touch, and I don’t feel anything else due to it. Recently though, I am urinating more frequently. I am 17, not sexually active. I have been fingered a few times, but never penetrated more than an inch.

        No it doesn’t.
        I want to add to the above question. Apart from my urination frequency shooting up in about the last 7 days, my vaginal fluid secretion has increased as well. Not the white discharge, but fluid in general.

          The protruding lump is likely to be a part of your vaginal wall, that has sagged a bit. Practice Kegels exercises daily to strengthen your pelvic musculature. In around 1 to 2 months time, you’re likely to see improvement.

          The protruding mass is likely to be touching your clitoris and exciting you in some way, leading to excess secretions. That’s normal.

          Try controlling excitation to reduce these symptoms. You may masturbate, with plenty lubrication, for relief, if required.

            I have something else to ask. My clitoris gives me a sharp pain whenever I touch it directly. Is it normal for some people to have extremely sensitive clitoris, or is it an infection?

    I’m 27 years old, sexually active and I stopped using my birth control (pill) a week ago. I never had children. This morning, when I went to the bathroom, a lump fell out of my vagina. It was flesh-like color and about 2 by 3 cm, not bloody. I don’t have pain, I wasn’t bleeding afterwards. What could it be? Should I make an appointment with a Gyn?
    I had multiple infections this past 4months (yeast, mycoplasma and bv) but it’s been a month that I have been feeling better. Not sure if that would be related to my problem.

    I opened the lips of my Vagina and saw individual skin colored growths:3 on one side of the labia and one on the other. They look like flaps, can move and oval. They seem to be irritating me- itching and uncomfortable. Have had 4 kids and one ovary removed. Can’t seem to figure it out.
