Vaginal cysts are fluid filled sacs present inside the vagina. Most of the time they are filled with clear or sticky fluid; and pus at times if they develop infection.
Many times small vaginal cysts do not cause any symptoms; and if big; they can cause:
It is very easy for your gynaecologist to diagnose a vaginal cyst just by the per vaginal examination; in which the cyst distinctly appears as a bulge.
Vaginal cysts should be carefully observed for growth or changes in appearance during routine exams. If the cyst grows larger or causes pain, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove the cyst. If the cyst causes an infection or abscess, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics as well as the drainage of pus.
The outlook is generally very good. Cysts are usually benign and often remain small. Cysts that are surgically removed usually won’t occur again
