In brief: Cyst in a gland

Bartholins gland is normally present at the vaginal opening and some times cysts may develop in the gland.
If it is producing a mass you should get it treated as there is risk of the cyst getting infected. The cyst is sometimes the result of an infection in bartholons gland.
