Veginal cyst---atypical pap results

Hi everyone,

It has been a few months now that my wife (29yrs old) has noticed that there was a lump (maybe size of a golf ball) on the inner right lip side of her vegina

She went to see her family doctor and the doctor told her it's most probably a cyst called Bartholin cyst and reffered her to a gynocologist

Recently she did a pap test and results came back atypical-POSITIVE
Doctor thinks it could be because of the presence of the cyst.

Iam very worried! as next week she has an appointment with her gyn. and even though her family doctor told her to not worry as this is being very common in women of her age group but she did mention that her gyn. may do a biopsy and then she also talked about a surgery to remove the cyst and stay in the hopistal for a night or 2?

Has anyone else had something similar?I did my re-search about bartholin cyst and most of the times they drain the liquide but I haven't heard people getting hospitalized for it

Thanks

Sam

I know this post is from last year, but I just had a similar experiance. I too had cyst on labia, doc did biopsy which came back clear, but decided to remove remainder of cyst and send it in again, as he was very suspicious , thankfully he did, it came back as a adenecarcinoma of the vulva, that was Dec. 23, 2008, and I had surgery to remove more tissue and lymph nodes on Jan 12th, 2009. It was a stage 3 cancer, but I consider myself fortunate, because i had really great docs. I will have to have 6 weeks of radiation as soon as I heal up , whish I am doing well so far. I hope and pray that your wife has had good care since she saw doc and that she is doing well. I am 55 years old and in great health, so it came as a complete shock, and I had no other symptoms. Women need to be educated about the 'outside plumbing' on their bodies and realize that the vulva should be examined monthly, just like the breast for lumps, or any other changes. Best wishes to you.
