Hi doctor,

I have one-sided swelling near labia majora since one month. I am an unmarried 26 year old female. There is no pain or discharge. I tried warm compress and Candifem ointment for seven days, but there is no much improvement. I have attached photos for your reference.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From the attachments (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and your history, this seems to be a Bartholin's cyst.

It is swelling of the Bartholin gland situated in the labia majora. It is a benign condition.

  • Though at present it is not painful, it might get infected some day to cause pain.
  • I do not want to scare you, but it would be a wiser decision to surgically remove the Bartholin's cyst when it is not infected, as complete excision or removal of Bartholin's cyst is possible.
  • Once it contracts infection, it turns into an abscess causing pain, and complete removal becomes difficult. So, better visit a gynecologist near your area and get it managed early.
