Bartholins cyst. Light micrograph of a section through tissue from the vagina showing Bartholin's cysts (light areas). The cysts are caused by blocked Bartholin's glands, which secrete a fluid that helps to lubricate the vagina. Treatment is only needed if the cyst becomes infected, or is particularly large or painful.
