Gynecology : It is usually best to see your gynecologist to have them fix this. They can follow you and make sure there are no issues. If the cyst is to painful to wait for a gynecologist then you can go to the ER.

Ob/Gyn: Ob/Gyns take care of Bartholin gland cysts. If they are very large and irritated, they are frequently opened and a small drain is placed inside to allow for continued drainage. The entire gland can also be excised if they are repeatedly a problem. Best wishes!

Gynecologist: Surgery on this part of the body would be done by a gynecologist. It depends on the extent of the surgery, if a woman may need to take a week or two off of work.
