Not necessarily: Bartholin's duct cysts are, as name implies, formed where the bartholin's duct exits the body at about 4 and 8 o'clock on the introitus ( vaginal opening). As long as the gland at the origin of the duct continues to secrete lubrication, a blockage leading to cyst formation is possible. If treated, have your doctor marsupialize the cyst..

Possibly: Once one has a Bartholin's cyst, the possibility of having another one is slightly greater.
