Vagina/ clitoris lump and pain

Patient : Hello. I'm a 28 year old female, abstinent from sex for 3 years. Today I woke up with pain and soreness in my genital area. I was in a rush to get out so I quickly washed up, checked it quickly (didn't notice much) and left it at that. I felt pain all day while out. Finally 8 hours later I decided to look more thoroughly and I realized my clitoris (or the area above it) was swollen. Mostly the right side of my clitoris (or the skin area above the actual clitoris.) and my labia right nect to it was swollen too. I started to push on it to see if there was a lump and there was a half a golf size lump there. It didn't seem red. Just painful, swollen and lump. Any idea what this could be?? How is it caused? and how do I treat it. What should I look out for. Oh and I don't know if this pertains to it but I just started my period about 2 hours ago. I was thinking Bartholin Cyst but those seem to be lower. Not at or above and to the right or the clitoris.
Symptoms:  pain, lump, swelling
