Vulvar cancer

October 11, 2018 - 11:52

Hi I was diagnosed with Vulval cancer in Jan 2017, at the age of 39. I had a partial radical vulvectomy 4 days later. All going well at my checkups until my 18 month check. Seems there are some areas of concern again, although my consultant thinks that should treatment be needed after the biopsy it will be laser treatment.
I know women with this cancer are very few and far between, and I am a member of 2 online groups but they are uk & america, so thought I would post here and see if there is anyone else in the same or similar position, closer to home.
Btw I'm in Dublin
