Strange painful lump on outer labia. need help!

Patient

Q: I'm 14 years old. I am not sexually active. about 3 days ago i found a cyst or abscess like lump on my left OUTER Labia (around where hair grows). it was about the same size as a pea, and not too painful. over the pat few days, it has gotten bigger to about the size of a large marble, or a small jawbreaker. it is very painful to walk and sit. the rest of my left labia, is swollen. i tried busting the lump with a pin, and some pus and blood came out of it. i dont think the hole was big enough, because i couldnt get much fluid out. it isnt quite as big anymore, but is still there and still very painful. the swelling has gotten worse. i do not want to see i doctor about it, because i dont feel comfotable with a doctor looking or touching down there. need a way to get rid of it at home, or atleast know what it is, please help!?!
