I am 31 years old, and was just diagnosed last week with vulvar cancer, and was given an immediate referral from my regular OB/GYN to a GYN/ONC who I will be seeing for the first time next week. My regular OB/GYN did not give me a whole lot of info, as far as what stage I am, how bad it is, etc... Is it normal to receive this info. from the GYN/ONC instead of from the OB/GYN? All I have had done so far is a punch biopsy which was performed by my OB/GYN. Will there be further tests before surgery that I should expect to determine whether or not this cancer has spread to other areas? Anyone with input please reply. Thank you so much.
