In brief: Depends
Bartholin abscess is usually incised and drained at first diagnosis.
Recurrence in less than 6 months usually leads to marsupialization procedure. New or recurrent symptoms in the bartholin gland after age 40 usually will lead to consideration of removal of the gland, due to increased risk for cancer.
