Each nabothian cyst appears as a small, white raised bump. There can be more than one.
During a pelvic exam, the doctor will see a small, smooth, rounded lump (or collection of lumps) on the surface of the cervix. Rarely, a colposcopy is necessary to distinguish nabothian cysts from other bumps and sores that can occur on the cervix.
Sometimes the cyst is opened to confirm that it is a nabothian cyst.
