My grandmother died in her late 70's from Vulva cancer, does that put me at high risk, does it run in genes? What symptoms do I look for?
Regular checkups: I trust that you see your doctor about once every year. Discuss the matter with her/him so that your doctor can examine the vulva. Please consult this site for symptoms of early vulvar cancer. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vulvar-cancer/basics/symptoms/CON-20043483 Wish you good health.
