I have a reoccuring bartholin abcess/cyst. I first got it 2 years ago and recently it came back a sceond time. Both experiences were a time of intense agony and I was completely bedridden. I feel ill and anxious at even the thought of this happening again. Although antibiotics have cleared the infection both times, this time there is still a visible lump on the gland. It is not infected and doesn't cause any pain or major discomfort but I'm absolutely terrified that it will come back as the cyst has not completely gone, only the infection (last time both cyst and infection completely went away.
What should I do? Apparently the gland can be removed if it's a reoccuring problem. I know a lot of people with this condition have worse episodes than me but it so severely affected my education and work last time, plus the agony, I really don't want to go through it ever again.
