Very: Several percent of women have it. It needs to be followed up because this is the breeding ground for squamous carcinoma. It may also self-heal. Be sure to comply with your caregiver's instructions; many lives are saved this way each year.

Not cancer: VIN stands for vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia. It is a form of precancerous lesion usually caused by the human papilloma virus. Type I is low-grade which means that it is less likely to progress to cancer.
