Small smooth pimplelike lump, genital wart??


Q: On my labia majora, I have a small round smooth bump that is reddish/flesh colored, and white in the center like a pimple, kind of resembles molluscm contagiosm, but is a little tender to the touch. It has grown in size for the past month, but is still small, less than 3 mm for sure. It looks like it has pus inside if I were to pop it. I wonder if I have genital warts, but I’m not sure because in the summer I had a pap smear and everything turned out normal. Since then, I have unprotected oral sex, but protected sexual intercourse with one other person and unprotected oral sex with another person. How likely is it that I have genital warts, is it primarily spread through oral sex? I also have had a benign small tumor for a few years now on the same side of labia majora , my doctor has told me not to worry about. Could this new small round smooth it be vulvar cancer? Any help would be appreciated, I am very worried.

Symptoms:  None, only tenderness when I touch the lump
