Vulvar Cancer. Vulvar cancer is often associated with the human papilloma virus (hpv) and so limiting the number of partners, and having protected sex is always prudent. The development of a white vulvar "patch" that doesn't scrape off and heal, may be an early sign, so a heightened state of vigilance is important, too. When in doubt, always consult your gynecologist.
Follow GYN-oncologis. Following the directions and guidance of a gyn-oncologist can posivitely impact the disease process of vulvar cancer. After the initial surgery and/or radiation/chemotherapy, proper follow up and wound care are essential to getting better.
