Bartholin cyst

Located on each side of the vaginal opening are the Bartholin’s glands, which secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina. In some cases, fluid backs up into the gland due to the obstruction of the openings of these glands, which causes a relatively painless swelling called a Bartholin cyst.
