I hope someone can me with a burning question... Due to a growth that I recently found and the subsequent biopsy, I've been told that I have VIN III and have to have surgery. I've also suffered terrible itching for several years, always in the same locations but different from where the growth was localized. I'm hoping that one of you ladies that have already been through this (or actual cancer) might be able to answer my question. I've read that vulvar cancer is often accompanied by severe itch. Was your itch localized to the area of the cancer or was it localized in a different area of the vulva? It may seem to be a silly question but I'm wondering if I should be asking for a colposcopy exam since my doctor didn't perform one. Any recommendations?
Thank you to anyone who can help me.
