Should I get my Bartholin's cysts removed?

In brief: Depends

If the cyst is not changing in size, and not causing any pain, they can be left alone.
Some people have trouble with them becoming infected, or growing. In rare cases, there have been reports of small cancers in the gland hidden by the cyst, so if it is changing in size, it needs to be removed.
