Veginal cyst - positive pap results

Hi everyone,

 

It has been a few months now that my wife (29yrs old) has noticed that there was a lump (maybe size of a golf ball) on the inner right lip side of her vegina

She went to see her family doctor and the doctor told her it's most probably a cyst called Bartholin cyst and reffered her to a gynocologist

Recently she did a pap test and results came back POSITIVE

Iam very worried! as next week she has an appointment with her gyn. and even though her family doctor told her to not worry as this is being very common in women of her age group but she did mention that her gyn. may do a biopsy and then she also talked about a surgery to remove the cyst and stay in the hopistal for a night or 2?

Has anyone else had something similar?I did my re-search about bartholin cyst and most of the times they drain the liquide but I haven't heard people getting hospitalized for it

 

Thanks

 

Sam

Hi Sam

It sounds as if your wife has what I had many years ago while expecting a baby.  It got so large that it would bleed when I walked.  They removed the mass while I was under anestetic at the time my baby was born.  I always thought that biopsy meant looking for cancer but when they did a colonoscopy on my hubby in May we found out that they were doing a biopsy on polyps removed looking for an infection so positive results could just mean an infection is present.  I'm sure they are looking into what is best for her by hospitalizing her - have you asked the doctors why?  Best of luck - sometimes it is more difficult to watch something going on with a loved one than it is to happen to us.
