How To Get Rid Of Bartholin Cysts That Are Getting Bigger?
I have a Bartholin cyst, more or less a year. Usually there are no problems, but lately began to feel pain and the size is getting bigger? What should I do? I’m afraid to tell my family, because I haven’t been married yet
Hello Kenzo, Thank you for the question.
Bartholin cyst is a fluid-filled kantunf (cyst) found in the Bartholin gland. The Bartholin gland is an alley gland located on the right and left sides of the genital lip, which functions to release fluid as a lubricant during intercourse. This cyst formed because the Bartholin gland is blocked. This blockage can occur due to bacterial infection, irritation, or inflammation. This cyst can get bigger. Cysts that get bigger and become painful generally indicate an infection. This infection can also cause the surrounding skin to become reddish and accompanied by pus (becoming a Bartholin abscess).
Thus, if this cyst enlarges and becomes painful, you should immediately consult an obstetrician and gynecologist for further examination and treatment. The doctor needs to examine your genital area to determine the cause so that the doctor can determine the appropriate treatment. Treatment that can be recommended by a doctor can be in the form of antibiotics and pain medications, removal of an abscess by a small surgical procedure, or removal of a cyst. You need not be afraid to tell your parents because this condition does not only occur to people who are married. For a while, you can sit in a warm bath or warm compresses to help overcome the cyst. Keep the genital area clean and dry and avoid using tight pants. You can take pain medications such as paracetamol if the pain is very annoying.
I hope this helps.
