What are Vaginal Cysts?

Vaginal cysts are benign cysts that form in the vaginal walls. Vaginal cysts can either be congenital, form during childhood or grow during adulthood. Vaginal cysts can be caused by injury or trauma during childbirth, a buildup of fluids in the vaginal glands or may form benign tumors within the vaginal walls. The cysts usually do not cause any trouble or symptoms. But they can cause pain and discomfort while indulging in sexual activities or while inserting tampons. There are several types of vaginal cysts. The most common ones include - Bartholin's cysts, inclusion cysts, and Gartner's duct cysts.

Treatment of Vaginal Cysts


During a pelvic exam, the gynecologist may feel the mass (cyst) on the vaginal wall. The gynecologist will then review the patient’s medical history and ask about the symptoms that the patient is having. The gynecologist might also suggest undergoing additional tests to rule out other conditions. The tests may include:

  • Biopsy of a tissue sample from the cyst to diagnose the possibility of vaginal cancer
  • Tests on the secretions or discharge from the vagina or cervix to find out if the patient has a sexually transmitted infection (STI).
  • An ultrasound, MRI or CT scan to see the detailed images of cyst.


In most cases, vaginal cysts are not serious and do not require medical treatment. But, if the patient experiences any discomfort or pain due to the size of the cyst, infection or abscess, treatment is required. Following are the treatment options for Vaginal Cysts:

  • Antibiotics are prescribed if the vaginal cyst is infected, or in cases where the patient has a sexually transmitted infection. If the patient has an abscess, the doctor will firstly drain out the abscess. No antibiotics are needed after the abscess has been drained .
  • The gynecologist may suggest the female to take Sitz baths, several times a day for 3-4 days. Soaking in warm water may treat a small infected vaginal cyst. Warm sitz bath will help the cyst to burst and drain out with no further intervention required.
  • The treatment option of “Marsupialization” is suitable for recurring vaginal cyst or bothersome cysts. In case of Marsupialization, the gynecologist put stitches on both sides of the drainage incision in order to form a permanent opening. A rubber tube is then inserted to drain for a few days post procedure. This is done to help prevent recurrence of the cyst.
  • In rare cases of Bartholin cysts, gland removal is the only treatment option for the patient. However, this situation occurs in very rare cases.
  • Infected or large cysts may require surgical drainage in order to remove the pus or contents. This is usually done under the influence of local anesthesia or sedation. The doctor will make a small incision in the cyst to drain it. After draining, the doctor will put a small rubber tube in the incision so that the cyst can remain open for several weeks and drain completely.

What are the different types of vaginal cysts?

The different types of vaginal cysts include:

  1. Bartholin’s gland cysts: Bartholin’s gland cysts are cysts formed in the Bartholin’s glands, which are present on both sides of the vaginal opening. These glands produce fluid that lubricates the labia, the outer lips of the vagina.
  2. Inclusion cysts: Most commonly, inclusion cysts are formed on the lower back of the vaginal wall. These cysts are very small in size and are unlikely to get noticed. Inclusion cysts are also one of the most common types of vaginal cysts. They may be caused by injury during childbirth or surgery.
  3. Müllerian cysts: Müllerian cysts form as a result of the material left behind during the development of the baby. These cysts can grow anywhere on the vaginal walls and can also contain mucus.
  4. Gartner’s duct cysts: These cysts occur when the ducts in the developing embryo do not vanish (like they should) after the baby is born. Over time, these leftover ducts can form vaginal cysts.

What happens in laparoscopic surgery for vaginal cysts?

Laparoscopic surgery for the removal of vaginal cysts is performed under the influence of general anesthesia. During the process, a small incision will be made below the navel. Through the incision, the surgeon will insert a laparoscope which will have a camera attached to it. The camera will help the surgeon to get a better view of the organs. The surgeon will also pump the abdomen with carbon dioxide gas and inflate it. With the help of the laparoscope, the surgeon locates the cyst. If required, the surgeon will make 1 or 2 more cysts. Through the incision, the surgeon will insert a few surgical instruments and remove the cyst. Additionally, the surgeon may remove some tissues from the nearby area. After the surgery, the surgeon will close the stitches and allow them to heal.

The surgery will be completed within 1-2 hours. Immediately after the surgery, the patient will be given medications and IV fluids.
