    Don't take any risks and get it check out.  I have had bartholin gland cancer.  It is very rare and usually only effects women over 65 years of age.  Chances of yours being cancer is really slim.  Of all the many, many doctors I have seen my Gynecologist Oncologist has been practicing for over 30 years and I was only her 4th case, my other oncologist also practicing for over 30 years I was only hi...

      DO NOT MESS AROUND, get it checked out more thoroughly.  They were not worried about my swollen bartholin gland and took their time getting me in for surgery to get a drain in it.  After the surgery they discovered it was cancer.  Usually they are a cyst and will pop eventually, bartholin gland cancer is incredibly rare and usually only effects women over 65.  I am only 44 and I have had many surg...

        What convinced me to go to CTCA is when I went their for an evaluation and met so many people being treated there that had been told "write your will now", " have 6 months to live", etc., etc. and these people got treated by CTCA and had been cancer free for years.  Their treatment is in no way a SPA or like being taken care of by their mommy.  I had major surgery to remove my tumor and was in intensive car...

          I did end up going to CTCA and had surgery there.  I completely agree with everything you said after having been there.  They are amazing.  I have finished all of my treatment and go back in 1 month for a checkup to see if they got all the cancer. CTCA was my 3rd opinion and I truly believe God sent me there to get the best care possible.

            I took the 2000 mile trip and discovered out of the 3 places I went to for opinions they were the best.  I have now received treatment from them for a few months and they are amazing.

              Anyone been to Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  I have an appointment there and they seem like they could be well worth the 2,000 mile trip.  Looking for some feedback to decide if it is worth the trip for treatment for a rare cancer.

                Anyone out there gone through treatment for Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Bartholin Gland and Lymph Nodes.  I was recently diagnosed and have not started treatment yet.  I was told I need a radical vulvectomy and lymph node disection.  This is a horrible surgery from what I have read.  I am getting a 2nd and 3rd opinion soon.  Has anyone gone through treatment for this condition??

                  Your story is amazing.  I was recently diagnosed with Bartholin Cancer and of the Lymph Nodes.  First thing the specialist wanted to do was a Radical Vulvectomy, I looked it up anc cancelled the surgery.  I am scared to death what the next doctor is going to tell me when I go to get a second opinion.  The surgery sounds like a nightmare and I can not find that alot of people with this cancer had s...
