cyst! help!

i have a friend who got diagnosed with bartholin's gland cyst, and she's quite praning about it... can anyone give info and whats not about this condition...anyone had experience?? thanks.


  • Bartholin gland is located at female organ. It's main function is for lubrication.

    The treatment can depend on one or more of these factors: the size of the cyst, how painful it is, if it's infected and your age. In some cases, a small cyst can just be watched over time to see if it grows. In other cases, the doctor can perform a minor procedure in the office. In this procedure, the doctor puts a small tube, called a Word catheter, into the cyst. The catheter stays in place for 2 to 4 weeks, draining the fluid and causing a normal gland opening to form. Then the catheter is easily taken out in the doctor's office. If you have this catheter put in, you can go on with your normal activity, although having sex would be uncomfortable while the catheter is in place.
