Bartholin Cyst: Needs to be seen, opened, drained and a catheter placed to complete the drainage and help with proper healing so it doesn't reoccur. Find someone who you can be comfortable with. These are professionals who look at your problem, not you. All the best. Keep the area clean in the shower 1-2 times a day. Your doctor may also choose to put you on an antibiotic.

Possibly: If the "lump" is gone and there is blood/fluid coming out of a hole if you squeeze, then it probably popped open.
