Question: Labia minora cyst

 GiggleBox - Thu Nov 12, 2009 8:22 pm

So just couple of days ago I noticed a pea sized bump on my uper, right labia minora. I've read up on it and hear to take warm baths ex..but it isn't helping. Today it seemed to get a little larger,not much though. And I'm mainly concerned because it is painful to walk and sit.

User avatar Hello,
It could be a sebacious cyst or a Bartholin duct cyst. No treatment is needed if they don't bother you but if they cause pain you may need to have them removed or drained. Cysts can often refill if they are merely drained so this must be done by your doctor and you should be aware it may not be a permanent solution.

Comfort measures include moist warm packs or sitz baths but this will probably not cure it.

Best wishes.
