Brief Answer:
excision of individual cysts as they are small.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query and picture.
To recapitulate: Female/40 - multiple sebaceous cysts on Labia Majora and minora - not appealing, gets painful - rub with clothing - was considering labioplastic surgery as this has been a problem for years - wants advise.

These are multiple cysts as seen in the picture, but are small and are separated from each other, you may please opt for excision of the cysts individually as this will be simple and easy procedure.
There is no need about labioplaty or so.
Once operated, keep the area clean with plain water and keep dry .
Avoid hot and humid atmosphere as these increase secretions and closure of hte ducts cause cysts to form more so with more sweating.
Also get histo-pathology report of the excised parts to get a confirmed diagnosis.

I hope this answers your specific query and helps you in decision making.
Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
Take care.

Hello doctor, I am 26 years old and trying to concieve. My periods have always been irregular. Recently, I had continuous spotting with delayed periods. In anticipation of concieving, I got my urine sample tested for pregnancy and had got my ultrasound done. Pregnancy test was negative whereas, the gynae after seeing the ultrasound report mentioned to me that my left ovary has multi cysts of smaller size and this is a sign of PCOS . She said that because of this I may not be ovulating from my left ovary and hence a delayed/irregular period. She has asked me to have Ova care forte (both A+B) tabs twice a day for 3 months. Cabgolin tab once every week for 3 months, siphene tab for 5 days from 3rd day of my period and susten for 5 days from 17th day of my period. Doctor, I want to know : 1. What are my chances of concieving? 2. How effective are the above mentioned medicine? 3. What are the side effects of above mentioned medicine? 4. I don t have any pain, then what was the reason for continuous discharge? Doctor please help me, I really want to have babies now.
