Brief Answer:
Warm fomentation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am,
If it is due to bartholin cyst,you can apply warm fomentation.
But as your size is quite big try surgical procedure called marsupialization for it to remove that gland( so recurrence is prevented).
If it is infected or pain is there,try antibiotics and analgesic after consulting with your treating doctor.

Good luck.
