What is that Bump?

Whether it's a cyst, pimple or bite, learn what body bumps say about your health.

Bed Bugs
Bed bugs can leave nasty little bumps on your body that look like mosquito bites or hives, and the creepy crawlers are moving out of the bed. They have been found in movie theaters, retail stores, restaurants and airports.

Bed bugs are attracted to humans by the carbon dioxide in their breath and the heat given off from the body. Don't worry, though; there are ways to stay safe from their bites!

Vaginal Cysts
Bartholin glands are located on either side of the opening of the vagina and lubricate the vagina. A cyst develops when the Bartholin duct becomes blocked, and fluid builds up in the gland. They can make it painful to sit, stand, walk and even lie down, and often, the only way to relieve the condition is to have the cyst drained or have surgery.

Charity, 38, has suffered from recurring Bartholin cysts for the past eight years. Although doctors have recommended a procedure to have the cysts removed, Charity is worried it will leave her disfigured or unable to enjoy sex.

Dr. Lisa demonstrates the surgery to remove the cyst.
