I was diagnosed after what was suppose to be a hemorrhoid removal surgery in 2/12. Ended up being warts/tumors. Luckily the tumor ended up only measuring about 5mm but the doctor did not do any sort of "margins". I am scheduled for 6 weeks of radiation plus chemo (2 treatments with Mitomycin and 2 (4day) treatments of 5FU Fluorouracil).
I am 25 years old, just had a baby boy 7 months ago and have also been diagnosed with VIN 3 (Carcinoma in situ of the vulva)... I will be having a vulvectomy for the VIN3 and once healed from that (approx. 1month) I will be starting radiation and chemo.
I guess my main concern is "Am I going to be able to care for my baby".
