Hi I ve had a bartholin cyst for going on 4 days now. I ve had one when I was 14 but it came and went away, no pain. This one is an abscess now. After 2 days I started feeling pain and felt the swelling. Went to the ER and was given the choice to lance it and have it drained, or start Bactrim DS with home remedies to let it pass on its own. I chose the antibiotics. I m not a big fan of surgerys, shots, or even doctors offices/ER in general. I believe in home remedies and natural ways to get rid of infection. It s probably the size of a large marble now, painful, and has white milky discharge. Hot baths are helping and I ve only been on Bactrim one day so I m not sure if it s helping. Any other ways to naturally have it gone?

I have a Bartholin cyst. I believe abscessed. This cyst occurred about 3 weeks ago after day 4 I went to the doctor. I was prescribed antibiotics and given a shot of an antibiotic. After the first day on the medicine I felt much better the pain was gone. But now 2 weeks later the cyst is still here. The size of a very large marble. Very red, tender. I notice almost a dark brown redish area on the cyst. So my question is, is there a possibility the cyst will rupture on its own or am I going to have to get this lanced, could I be putting myself at harm by not having a procedure done. My first trip to the doctor, doc said cyst was abscessed but not ready to lance.

My husband was diagnosed and treated for lymphoma. As the result, he developed a lesion in his thoracic duct which gave need for multiple thoracentesis. His cardiothoracic surgeon corrected this problem with a thoracic ligation however the resulting scar tissue has caused a blockage in the thoracic duct and lymph fluid is backing up into his abdominal cavity. His HPB surgeon placed a Denver shunt to help recycle this fluid but the volume is too much for the shunt to handle. Please tell me is it possble to ligate any of these ducts and if so what type of surgeon whould we seek out? Please help us...Thank you!
