A 38-year-old female asked:

I had my bartholin gland cyst drained and they left a 6 mm long cut that is not closing, its edges are healing around it. im afraid it will stay open like that, leaving a 6mm hole at the side of my vulva. it's been 7 days since the procedure. ?

Stays open: If done properly it is suppose to stay open and drain or the fluid collects again
