Describe The Features Of A Bartholin Cyst
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
Swelling from joint: Baker's cysts are a result of a weakness in the capsule of the knee joint. If there is cause for increased fluid pressure in the knee (arthritis or meniscus tear) fluid may leak out of the capsule and form a cyst behind the knee. The swelling can come and go. If persistent, addressing the cause (i.e. A meniscus tear) often results in disappearance of the cyst. Surgery rarely done for cyst alone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Red-hot,painful lump: Common features of breast abscesses include swelling and redness of the breast associated with a new, tender, progressively-enlarging lump. While more common with lactation, abscesses can develop at any time in a woman's life. Traditional rx often involved surgery, however current techniques favor (repeated) aspiration and antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mobile mass attached: Sebaceous cysts originate within the skin and are therefore attached over the mass. There is a layer of fat underneath the cyst that makes them movable. If the cyst ruptures under the skin, scar tissue forms and can initiate an inflammatory response. This will reduce their mobility and make them more difficult to remove. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bruise: When the skin is traumatized, usually by a direct blow, small capillaries are damaged and leak blood cells. These spread through the interspaces under the skin leading to the bluish discoloration called a bruise. Unless associated with bleeding disorders, or the trauma caused deeper injury, these can be treated with icing for 2-3 days and then heat later to resolve the bruise. ...Read more
Bump at the big toe: A bunion refers to the bump on the inside of the big toe joint. This usually results from hallux valgus, a deformity of the big toe joint where the midfoot bone (metatarsal) points in towards the middle of the body and the toe points out toward the 5th toe. That position of the bones creates a prominence on the inside of the foot that is the bunion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
"Rubbery" lump: Fibroadenomas are the most common breast tumor. They can be found as early as the teen years and are often estrogen-sensitive, growing in response to bcps or pregnancy. On examination, they often feel round-to-oval, well- defined, and rubbery. They also have a distinct appearance on ultrasound and mammography, but can be confused with cancers: when suspected, a (non-surgical) biopsy is indicated. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Tearing: A blocked tear duct is most commonly seen in children under the age of 12 months. It typically presents with a watery eye, occasionally with some mucus. Treatment involves massaging the region overlying the duct, mechanically or surgically opening the duct, or simply observing whether it will open on its own. In older individuals, it almost always requires surgery, if the symptoms are bothersome. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What do sebaceous cysts look like? How can you describe the appearance of a typical sebaceous cyst?
Unless : Unless ruptured, a sebaceous cyst is classically round , well-demarcated, intimately related to the dermis of the skin (i.e., skin doesn't move freely over it), can be of variable size, may or may not be tender depending on whether it is infected at the time, may have a central pore visible over its surface, and usually grows slowly over time or may not change once established. ...Read more
Deep trapped skin...: They are caused by skin surface cells trapped beneath the skin's surface, usually due to minor trauma. These cells continually shed, increasing the size of the cyst (more accurately an epithelial inclusion cyst.) removal is generally a minor surgical procedure, but requires total removal of the cyst wall to prevent recurrence of the cyst. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many lumps are just variants of normal "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue, or could represent a cyst; however, some may represent a tumor, which could be benign or malignant. Malignant tumors tend to be rock-hard, non-mobile, occasionally with overlying skin changes. Bottom line: new lump=see dr. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a bartholin cyst aspirated 2 weeks ago. It hurts a bit when I get turned on. Any idea what is happening?
Healing: As you become sexually aroused, the blood vessels in the vulva and vagina dilate. This can put some added pressure on any injured or healing area. The resulting discomfort in an area of recent cyst aspiration is not at all surprising. It will gradually disappear over the next couple of weeks, perhaps a little longer. If it persists more than 6 weeks, discuss with your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See a doctor: Bartholin gland cysts / abscesses develop in approximately 2 percent of all women. Asymptomatic cysts in patients under age 40 may not require treatment, however, there are a number of vulvar + vaginal lesions that can mimic a cyst / abscess. Although vulvar cancer is rare, especially in a menstruating woman, a bleeding Bartholin cyst requires evaluation by your MD ASAP with a likely biopsy. ...Read more

Infected?: A Bartholin gland is usually "lanced" when it's infected. This treats the infection, but the gland stays in place, and in these cases there is a very high chance of the gland enlarging and becoming bothersome again (not necessarily infected). The best time to completely remove an enlarged Bartholin gland is when it is not infected, so you may try for a more complete excision at this point. ...Read more
