During a pelvic exam, the gynecologist may feel the mass (cyst) on the vaginal wall. The gynecologist will then review the patient’s medical history and ask about the symptoms that the patient is having. The gynecologist might also suggest undergoing additional tests to rule out other conditions. The tests may include:
- Biopsy of a tissue sample from the cyst to diagnose the possibility of vaginal cancer
- Tests on the secretions or discharge from the vagina or cervix to find out if the patient has a sexually transmitted infection (STI).
- An ultrasound, MRI or CT scan to see the detailed images of cyst.
