Why Does It Contain Blood Bartholin Cysts And Not Phlegm?
want to ask, my friend just had a bartholin cyst surgery, said the doctor whose surgery contained blood cysts, the doctor was confused because the cyst’s contents should have been phlegm. I want to ask why is the contents of the cyst blood? whether it’s normal or not, thanks in advance
Thank you for the question.
Bartholin cysts are benign tumors originating from blocked Bartholin glands, so that the mucus builds up, wrapped in sacs to form cysts. This condition will clinically cause lumps or swelling on the lips of the vagina, can be left, right, or even both. These lumps or swelling can be painful, reddish, and warm when touched, especially when inflamed or have a secondary infection. With good handling, it is not uncommon for Bartholin cysts to collapse or break on their own. Although in some cases, it can also need further treatment by a doctor or obstetrician, such as by being given drugs, or by special surgery.
Because the origin of the mucus wrapped in a bag, then indeed during surgery, Bartholin's cysts should be issued mucus. However, it is not impossible to also bleed out along with the mucus due to the presence of blood vessels that supply it. However, if it is true that the cyst that comes out is only blood, without the slightest mucus, then it may be that your colleague experienced actually not a Bartholin cyst, but other conditions, such as hemangiomas, hemangiosarcoma, polyps, myoma geburt, Bartholin's gland cancer, vulva cancer, and many other possibilities.
Of course, the doctor or obstetrician who handles it directly is the most understanding of the conditions experienced by your colleague. Usually, if you suspect a condition other than Bartholin's cyst, your doctor will direct your colleague to undergo further tests, such as ultrasound, biopsy, and so on. So, consult directly with him a lot ..
I hope this helps.
