Marsupialization for Bartholin Cyst Treatment
Marsupialization: It is a minor surgical procedure performed under local/ spinal/ general anesthesia depending on the severity of the cyst/ patient’s personal choice.
The gynecologist first makes a nick to drain the pus and then enlarges the incision slightly to create a temporary ‘kangaroo pouch’ on the labial lips. This helps support fuller drainage over a period of a few weeks. If needed, the ends of the incision may be stitched outwards or a catheter may be placed to drain the pus.
This method helps push the complete pus out of the cyst which may or may not be otherwise visible to the naked eye and thus helps prevent Bartholin cyst recurrence.
Marsupialization for Bartholin cyst costs around Rs 25,000 to Rs. 30,000 in Mumbai. The exact price may vary on your choice of hospital, doctor’s fee, follow-up, medication, and other medical and non-medical factors.
