What's this large bump on the inside of my vagina? (photo)

What is this bump?
Internal exams are best done by gynaecologists
This internal "bump" is probably part of your hymen membrane and is likely absolutely normal
Since your photo is not terribly clear, a physical exam will best tell whether you are pointing to a normal variety of the hymen-- the membrane that separates the vaginal canal from the opening of the vagina and which usually remains intact until having penetration with sexual intercourse. the reference drawing that I have attached shows some normal variations of the Hymen.
See your gynecologist who should confirm and reassure you on physical exam.

Thank you for your question. Your vaginal anatomy appears to be normal and the skin appears to represent your normal hymen that typically remains intact until intercourse. I recommend you have a pelvic exam by a ABMS certified gynecologist who can help you understand your specific anatomy. Until then, remember you have normal vaginal anatomy.
Normal vaginal anatomy
Thank you for your question. I completely understand your concerns. From the appearance on your photos, your anatomy appears normal. The bump you see appears to be the hymen. The best thing to do is to utilize a resource such as this one to find a Board-Certified Gynecologist to perform a routine exam. They can perform an in-person assessment and make appropriate recommendations. Hope this helps!
