What Is Vulvar Cancer?

Combating cancer begins with being armed with essential information about the disease.

Vulvar cancer is the uncontrollable growth of malignant cells in the vulva. The vulva, which is the outer surface of a woman’s genitals, is at the opening of the vagina (birth canal). It has three main parts, including:

  • The opening of the vagina
  • The labia, which comprises two skin folds
  • The clitoris, a sensitive knob of tissue
  • The mons pubis, the soft mound in front of the pubic bones
  • The perineum, the skin separating the vulva and the anus

Vulvar cancer is rare. The American Cancer Society notes that about 6,200 women in the United States are diagnosed with it each year.

Vulvar Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The main types of vulvar cancer are:

Squamous cell

This wart-like growth accounts for 90 percent of all vulvar cancers. It usually develops around the edges of the labia.

Melanoma

Melanoma is the succeeding common type of vulvar cancer. It represents less than 5 percent of vulvar cancer cases.

Adenocarcinoma

These malignant tumors begin in the Bartholin glands or sweat glands in the vulva. It makes up about 8 percent of vulvar cancer cases.

Sarcoma

Sarcomas are rare and aggressive vulvar cancers that occur in the cells of muscles, bones, or connective tissue. About 2 of every 100 vulvar cancers are sarcomas.

Other types of cancers, including melanomas and sarcomas, can also develop in the vagina. Further, specific cancers may spread to the vagina from their original sites such as carcinoma of the cervix, uterus, rectum, and bladder.

Vulvar Cancer Symptoms

Signs of vulvar cancer may include:

  • A lump or sore close to the opening of the vagina
  • Rought, wart-like bumps on the surface of the vulva
  • Burning, itching, or pain in the genital area
  • Unusual bleeding and discharge
  • Skin changes, including color changes or thickening
  • A sudden change in a mole near the genital area
  • Painful urination

These symptoms do not always mean a woman has vulvar cancer. However, it is best to consult a medical professional if any new symptoms persist for weeks.

Vulvar Cancer Causes

Little is known about the exact cause of vulvar cancer. However, doctors have identified factors that may increase a woman’s risk of the disease. These include:

  • Older age. Over half of vulvar cancer patients are over 70 years old
  • Infection with HPV (human papillomavirus)
  • Infection with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus)
  • Having vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN)
  • Tobacco use
  • Family or personal history of melanoma and/or cervical cancer

It is important to note that not all women with risk factors will develop vulvar cancer, and not all women without risk factors are immune. If you have risk factors, discuss them with your physician as soon as possible.

Diagnostic Tests for Vulvar Cancer

Diagnosing vulvar cancer begins with your doctor asking questions about your health, symptoms, and family medical history. In the suspicion of a malignant growth, one or more of the following tests may determine if you have vulvar cancer and if it has spread:

  • Excisional biopsy, where a small knife is used
  • Punch biopsy, in which a tiny punch tool is used
  • Computed axial tomography (CT or CAT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Chest x-ray

Early detection plays a role in improving your vulvar cancer prognosis and life expectancy.
