Mass on Clitoris. MRI showed Bartholins gland. Is surgery the best option?

I have almost a 4cm. mass on my clitoris. The MRI done last week , shows it has a substance of a Bartholin s Gland . Can you have one on your clitoris? What could it be caused from? I am scheduled for surgery to have it excised next week. The doctor seems very concerned. Is surgery in my best interest, or is there something else I can do to try and shrink it?
