I would have the cyst looked at by your doctor while it is still there so they can determine the cause. ...Read more

It might be a Bartholin's cyst which has gotten large enough to be felt near the clitoris, though those glands are generally further towards the base of the labia. in any case, it's something you should have looked at by your GYN doctor, to see if it needs antibiotics or drainage. ...Read more
