In brief: A big ball

A bartholin's cyst will be located in one of the labia near the bottom of the vagina on the sides at 6:00 or 9:00.
It will soft and squishy and shapes like a ping pong ball. In some cases there will be no pain. When they get infected the pain is severe. If you think you might have one then it is time to schedule a visit to your local obgyn.
