Hello! So a couple days ago my daughter found a weird lump close to the base of her vagina. There was a sore on it, that started to ooze and bleed on and off throughout the day. It started bleeding a little less after the first day, but continued to inconsistently bleed for about 2 more days. It then stopped. I did some online research and freaked myself out because one site said that this is a sign of Uterine Cancer. The lump is still there and it looks a little red, but it is not bleeding. Can someone tell me what it is?

HI, The vaginal lump in a 13 year old girl that is bleeding off and on is more likely to be a haematocolpos. This is nothing but collection of menstrual blood in the vagina that cannot be released outside because of presence of an imperforate hymen. The lump can also be a fibroid or vaginal cyst. The risk of cancer is very less. You should consult a gynaecologist for an examination. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
