The following symptoms indicate that you might benefit from consulting with a gynaecologist:
MALIGNANT INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA (VIN) - refers to changes that can happen in the skin that covers the vulva. VIN is not cancer, and in some women it disappears without treatment.
However, it may develop into cancer after many years, so VIN is known as a pre-cancerous condition.
INVASIVE MALIGNANT NEOPLASIA – very rare genital cancer mostly seen in women over 60 years.
VULVODYNIA - defined as chronic vulval discomfort, most often described as a burning pain, occurring in the absence of relevant visible findings or a specific, clinically identifiable, neurological disorder.
Vulval problems are very common but potentially serious. Diagnosis of vulval problems is very difficult as 30% of patients have more than one problem. A biopsy essential unless very obvious cause or prepubertal.
