Q: Hi, I have recently noticed that I have 2 hard white bumps next to each other on my labia minora, they are smaller than a pea and do not hurt or itch. They are kind of under the skin and ball shaped.. What could this be?

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query and the picture.

The hard white bumps next to each other on my labia minora are usually are the retention cysts of the skin akin to sebaceous cyst.
If they are not causing any symptoms, just keep a watch and they may be resolved by the body itself; the self-healing.
If they enlarge or cause any problems, consult your Gynecologist and they can be removed by a very small surgery.
Please do not fiddle with them or do not try to pop, as then may go into infection and cause complications.

I hope this answer helps you.
