How do I pop a bartholian cyst, it hurts I have a painful vaginal cyst about the size of a grape on rt mid - lower inner vulva

How do I pop a bartholian cyst, it hurts I have a painful vaginal cyst about the size of a grape on rt mid - lower inner vulva

Avoid sharp objects!: I recommend applying warm compresses to the area for 10-15 minutes, several times a day. A bartholin's gland cyst or abscess is a little deep for 'popping' and you may make it worse. If it doesn't drain spontaneously, your ob/gyn can do an incision & drainage in the office, and/or (esp if it comes back) a procedure called a marsupialization to prevent recurrences. ...Read more

I heard that removing a cyst doesn't hurt. Is that true?

Depends : If you need anything surgically removed, it will probably hurt a little. It also depends on how big the cyst and its location. The worst part of most minor surgeries when they numb the area with lidocaine. There is usually the sharpness of the needle and then the burn of the medication, but afterwards the area should be numb for the rest of the procedure. Good luck! ...Read more
