Pea-sized cyst: For a cyst this small, i would just treat it with warm compresses for 15 minutes at a time 3 times a day. If it doesn't get bigger, it will probably go away on its own. If it does get bigger, then you will need to see an md.

Bartholin cyst: I would recommend you see a physician. This could be the early stages of an infection in your Bartholin's gland.
