Nabothian cyst

A nabothian cyst is a lump filled with mucus on the surface of the cervix.

The cervix is located at the lower end of the womb (uterus) at the top of the vagina. It is about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) long.

Nabothian cyst

The cervix is lined with glands that normally secrete mucus. These endocervical glands can become filled with secretions that accumulate as a pimple-like elevation called Nabothian cysts. These cysts are not a threat to health and no treatment is necessary.
