Bartholin cyst removal

When is treatment necessary?

Most women don’t know about the existence of their Bartholin glands before they cause problems. These glands are located near the vaginal opening on both sides, thus they are at increased risk of becoming infected. When bacteria enters the Bartholin duct it can become inflamed and it can block the gland from emptying. As a result the gland itself could be inflamed and form abscess.

It’s often very painful and may even cause fever. When the ducts are blocked but inflammation isn’t present, we treat it as a cyst.

The treatment is surgical and it should be pursued when the abscess or cyst causes symptoms or becomes uncomfortable.

Bartholin cyst

How does the surgery go?

Doctors are treating Bartholin cysts and abscesses with surgery in every case. During surgery doctors put you into general anesthesia.

When you have a cyst the surgeon cuts the skin open and removes the cyst with the gland itself, so you won’t have to worry about a new cyst anymore.

If an abscess is causing the problems, doctors open up the inflamed region, drain it and they use 2-3 stiches to prevent the wound from closing so this way it will have enough time to heal and drain out every residual pus that may be present.
