It is difficult to say what the lumps are without examining them directly and they may or may not have something to do with the pain. As the vaginal lining gets thinner at menopause sex can become painful. If your GP cannot help you might consider going to your local integrated sexual health clinic. They will be very used both to looking at vaginas and dealing with painful intercourse and may be able to offer you some answers.
