I am a 22 year old mother (turning 23 shortly) and I had to go to the doctors because I had a miscarriage in march and haven't had my period for months. (not pregnant) I have gained about 10-15 pounds and can't lose the weight.
I went in to the doctors, had my exam, Cant tell me why I don't have my period. Had 2 ultra sounds every thing came back normal on the inside both the ultra sounds and exams. My doctor found odd moles on me including one on my "favorite girly part" as i like to call it. and he decided to do a biopsy. He says they are pre cancerous and it's vulvar cancer. Now, I've been searching online, and I think it is melanoma vulvar cancer because it's only moles, no sores or anything. I go in next month to get them all lasered off.
I guess I'm just afraid, and dont want them to come back, or dont want them to miss any.
Is this type of cancer due to sun exposer? I spent 3 months in a behavior modification program in Mexico a couple years ago with no sun screen and it just makes me worry.
