Sebaceous cysts: If this was truly a sebaceous cyst it may have to be surgically removed. If only drained and the capsule remains it may reform and rupture once again and it will create a risk of becoming infected. See your gynecologist and have them advise you. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more

Cyst: Sorry you are having pain. You may or may not have a Bartholin Gland Cyst if the swelling is on the outside of your labia majora. I recommend an immediate visit to Urgent Care where they can examine you, perform full STI testing if necessary, and determine if you need drainage and antibiotics. An OB office if you are able to go today even better. Stay calm and see Urgent Care or OB. Good luck. ...Read more

Best way to get rid of boils/cysts from labia lips and boils from breasts? They don't hurt an I don't know u got them till I wash myself or check.

Exam: I would definitely get an exam from a doctor for both of these areas. Boils or cysts on breasts always need to be examined to rule out breast cancer. A boil is typically an infection, a cyst may or may not be, thus treatment is different for each. But definitely get an exam as wouldn't want to miss anything important. Good luck! ...Read more

Blocked Bartholin: The Bartholin's gland in the labia has a duct that opens just inside of the labia. When that duct gets blocked, the gland will swell or get infected. Washing carefully and keeping the vulva free of oils and irritating soaps will help prevent the recurrances. Sometimes the cyst has to be permanently opened in a minor surgical procedure called marsupialization of the Bartholin's gland. ...Read more
