UTI Symptoms That Wasn't a Bladder Infection: Suburethral Diverticula

Suburethral Diverticula
This patient came to the office with what she thought was a bladder infection. The examination revealed a cyst that was sitting near the opening of the urethra. This condition is called a suburethral diverticula. It's possible this cyst is a Skene's gland infection, or a cyst of the wall of the vagina itself, but usually they are pouches off the urethra that can become infected. They also can just be the site of old infection and now the cyst is not active and doesn't need to be treated.But as with all lumps, it is important to get them evaluated by your gyno so that your medical management can be individualized.
