What Are Symptoms of Bartholin's Cyst?
You may not have any symptoms if the Bartholin gland cyst is small. But a large cyst or an infected cyst (abscess) can cause symptoms.
Symptoms of an infected cyst include:
- Pain that gets worse and makes it hard to walk, sit, or move around.
- Fever and chills.
- Swelling in the vulva area.
- Drainage from the cyst.
Symptoms of a cyst that is not infected include:
- A painless lump in the vulva area.
- Redness or swelling in the vulva area.
- Discomfort when you walk, sit, or have sex.
