I was recently diagnosed with vin iii. My doc did a wide excision and when i went to see him for pos-op check a week after surgery he informed me that he found additional sites on both labia where it seemed vin iii was present. He said I did not need to see a gyno-onco due to the fact that it was only vin iii and not cancer. The surgery was awful and I don't want to think of the possibility of future surgery, but I know I can't ignore this. I have a wonderful family who are very supportive, but they are just as confused as I am. My doc said that he wants me to use a creme to try and remove the additional sites that he found to avoid surgery and just keeps telling me "it's ONLY vin iii, not cancer" so I shouldn't worry about it so much. I have just recently graduated from college and starting a new career but I don't know if I should put things on hold until I get this under control. I would love to hear from someone who has gone through this and get some feedback. Thank you so much for your help.
