Marsupialization: Marsupialization means uncovering the skin covering the cyst and open it to heal from the periphery of the cyst.

Procedure to drain: Marsupialization is a procedure that allows the Bartholin's cyst to drain long term. Usually an incision is made on the skin and into the cyst allowing immediate drainage, then the wall of the cyst is attached to the skin edge on the outside incision. This heals as a small hole that allows drainage of any secretions made by the Bartholin's gland so it does not become enlarged and bothersome.

Possible: You should have healed in about 7 to 10 days. If there is a wound that has not healed, you need to see your doctor.
