Sometimes the cyst has to be permanently opened in a minor surgical procedure called marsupialization of the Bartholin's gland. ...Read more

See answer: An infected Bartholin's or sebaceous cyst would be most likely and occur in inner part of labia minora. An infected skene's duct cyst occurs adjacent to opening of urethra.
