Question: I have round lumps-pea size and shape-inside of my labia. My dr seems to ignore it but sometimes it is very bothersome. Most of the time I don't feel anything until I wipe. Other times my labia feels like it is on fire. I use different OTC pain cream to stop the pain. I am 65 years lid and in good health. I have been married for 40 years.

Brief Answer:
Bartholin cysts

Detailed Answer:

I think we are talking about bartholin glands turning into cysts and inflammed. Sometimes they enlarge and cause more pain than usual. They are generally benign. I think you should be stern on your doctor to intervene and excise them. The drier the vaginal mucosa the more chances of inflammation. You can get an Oestrogen cream prescribed from your doctor for time being.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for considering these concerns I have regarding a possible Bartholin cyst: It's sort of squishy/sort of firm, and I have had it for years. There's no pain, but it seems to be growing. I have a dreadful fear of doctors.Also, my period...

I had a Bartholins cyst and i went to the gyn. today to have it drained. This is the 4th time Ive had it. Every time it hurts like hell and i cant walk or sit down. The first three rimes they drained it it was more pus than blood but this time it was mostly blood. Is there supposed to be so much blood? They put a catheter in to let it drain. Again the first 3 times when they cut it was instant relief but this time it still hurt after. Could it be because its still swollen? I always get it around the time i get my period. So can that have anything to do with it? Can my Bartholin s gland be taken out to prevent this from happening? Is there a way to prevent it? By the way I m 17 years old and this interferes with everything especially school because i have to miss so many days. Please help i don t want this to happen to me anymore.
