Vaginal Cysts

Screening and Tests for Vaginal Cysts

Diagnosing vaginal cysts often occurs during a regular pelvic exam because the cysts often produce no symptoms. If the patient complains of discomfort, the doctor will use the pelvic exam to screen for vaginal cysts. During the exam, the doctor may feel or see a lump on the vaginal wall. A biopsy may be performed to check for cancer if a lump seems to be solid. X-rays may be used when cysts are located below the bladder or urethra to make sure cysts are not causing problems to these organs.
