Hello all. I have just seen a gyno for a white vulval lesion. I'm now scheduled for a biopsy and colposcopy, so I'm unsure of the stage, but the doctor says he doesn't think it's cancer yet.
My question is, can vulval cancer appear spontaneously, or does it progress through the various stages of VIN first? I'm 44 years told, and I'm not sure if I'm HPV positive, but I've never had an abnormal pap or any problems till I noticed this white area a year ago. I'd never even heard of vulval cancer, or would have sought attention sooner.
Needless to say, I'm scared, especially after reading about the treatments!
My appointment is not for two weeks - they're waiting for the pap results - and I'm doing my utmost to remain in the moment and calm.
