Bartholin cyst if it is very large and symptomatic must be removed surgically. You have not mentioned where you have diverticulitis? small bowel / large bowel / bladder ?
Any how your cyst has to be removed and sent for Pahological study. This will rule out cancer. Long standing bartholin cyst does not predispose to cancer.
