Posted on Wed, 13 May 2015
Question: I have a mass that feels like a marble shape next to my vagina.under the skin. It has been there for a few weeks. It is not painful. There is a burning sensation and a white watery discharge from the vagina. I am a 60 years old. Could this be a cancerous bartholin cyst. If so with a mass this large would the stage be high.

Brief Answer:
The chances of cancer is only 2-4%.

Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am,

Nice to hear from you.

With your description the chances of carcinoma are quite less.

The chances of bartholin gland cancer are only 2-4 % but yes at your age any suspected mass needs evaluation.

The size of bartholin gland cyst may variate from as small as pea and as big as an egg.

You should consult a Gynaecologist and get yourself examined and if she suspect than biopsy should be done to rule out the cancer.

You can upload the image by clicking a button on right side of desktop, click that button and there is an option to upload the document, you can upload your picture there.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello ma'am,

If you are not feeling good to send your pictures to me, than its ok.

Please consult your Gynecologist and if you feel so kindly consult again with me and share your test results.

Please do not take so much of stress, it is most probably a bartholin cyst.

If you want to ask further I feel happy to assist you.

Good luck.
