Bartholin cyst

Treatment depends on your age and whether the cyst is causing symptoms. If you do not have symptoms, you might not need any treatment. Otherwise,

●Draining the cyst or abscess – In this procedure, the doctor cuts a small hole to let fluid or pus out. This procedure is often done in a doctor's office. But if you have a large or deep abscess, you might need treatment in the hospital. Antibiotics are sometimes needed.

●Surgery – Doctors can do this if draining fluid does not work well. A doctor can make a new opening to help the Bartholin gland drain fluid. Or he or she can remove the gland and any cyst or abscess.
