Bartholin's Cyst Treatment+ More
This procedure treats a Bartholin's cyst through incision and drainage. A Bartholin's cyst is a small fluid filled sac just inside the vagina. The cyst forms on the Bartholin's gland which is a gland that produces fluid that lubriates the vagina, when the glands become blocked. The cyst ranges in size and generally varies between the size of a pea, to the size of marble. If the Bartholin's cyst becomes infected, it is usually referred to as a Bartholin's abscess and generally requires drainage.
2 - 3 days
It is usually safe to fly afterwards, but depending on the type of procedure, there may be a follow up visit required - e.g. to remove a drainage catheter.

Acute Leukemia Treatment+ More
Leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the blood cells in the body. It usually begins in the bone marrow where an abnormality occurs in the white blood cells. Normal blood cells form, divide, and die to make room for new cells. Leukemia disrupts this process and prevents the blood cells from functioning properly.
The length of stay abroad will depend on the treatment plan and the patient's response to treatment.
