I was told I have Vulvar Cancer aka VIN III. I have tried to research it and to tell you all the truth I have a list of questions for my oncologist. Is these even curable? I had a biopsy done in mid December and it came back as precancerious, I did not think of it being a big deal since the doc told me it could be fixed by surgery. By late january i was mutilated (had surgery), and was bluntly told I had Vulvar Cancer and it was moving fast! They are trying to avoid the Cancer spreading to my cervix. I have an appointment with the onocologist this month. And recently scheduled another apointment with another oncologist in March. Is this too fast? Did any of you know that only 1% of all cancers is Vulvar? Please tell me it is not true, and that the doctors know what they are doing! I try to make a nothing out of this, my family is terrified of it. When the women in my family had it.. it was done at the precancerious stage and they where in thier late 30's. I am 27, no STD's, no pain, no burning, no nothing. It just so happened that I found a mole by my vagina and "oops!" it is precancerious and not a wart! I have my boyfriend living with me.. and don't want him to go through this with me.. I told him to leave, but he is determined to stay and taht this is going to end sometime.. but listening to all of you and reading the few research I don't know if I am ever going to have a life like I did before. I know that things won't be the same.. but they should be somewhat the same. Since I recieved the news, I have not stopped in doing research of treatment, and diets and doctors that are going to see me. I do get scared and depressed sometimes, but I am so stubborn that I sometimes annoy myself and get up and start again getting my thoughts organized. I can't just stay still doing nothing knowing that I am dying inside. I may exagerate, but that helps me to keep going.
