There are many different symptoms regarding vulvar issues, not all of them relate to cancer. I would imagine if you have noticed something different in your vulvar area, then it is imperative to see you doctor.
I had vulvar adenocarcinoma in 2009, and I had none of the 'usual' symptoms such as itching, raised spots, etc. I did have a small cyst like pimple, which I thought was a sweat gland or ingrown hair and biopsy revealed cancer.
What I have and am still going through because of this will all be worth it if I can get the message out to women to know there own bodies, be aware of what is normal for you and what is not, and please communicate with your doctors, and do not be afraid or embarrassed to do so.
I hope that you are well but also that you have yourself checked out by a doctor if you are concerned about anything. I wish you the best!
