When What’s Common Becomes a Problem
In the vagina, harmless bumps and lumps are common. They can be too small to see, or as large as an orange.

Though the cause of a vaginal cyst is often unknown, the most common diagnosed reasons are Bartholin’s gland cysts, Skene’s gland cysts, urethral diverticulum, and inclusion cysts.
The usual side effects are temporary bleeding and mild discomfort at the removal sites due to scar tissue. This pain should pass as the body heals. Vary rarely, a catheter may be necessary for a limited time, as the bladder and ureters are in close proximity and the cyst removal may cause them some irritation/swelling. Also, further surgery may be necessary to remove any recurrence, even though all efforts are made to eliminate them permanently.
You’ll want to remove a cyst if it becomes infected or is causing discomfort. Also, the size and/or location of a cyst can affect other organs, such as your bladder/urethra. Some cysts can cause vaginal discharge with unpleasant odor. Women over 40 should have cysts removed and tested for cancer, as aging increases risk.
