Vulvar Cancer

Posted by ali1974 @ali1974, Nov 12, 2020

Hello:
I have posted on other discussion group about my struggle with my health, previous cancer stories and concerns for my genetic history. I can’t seem to get a break. I just had a biopsy today to rule out vulvar cancer. I honestly didn’t even know there was such a thing. Has anyone been diagnosed with this and is it more common than what I have been reading?
I am BRCA2 and MSH6 positive. 2 time breast cancer and ovarian cancer survivor I have lived a drug and alcohol free life it just doesn’t end!

I would like to add that I’m 46yrs old, married and have 2 daughters. I don’t understand why I may have this because I have never has a STD or anything. I’m so perplexed by it all.
Thanks for listening!
Alice

Hi @ali1974 Alice,
I'm wondering what you found out from the results of the biopsy. Did it comes back positive for vulvar cancer?

Hi,
I am new to this site and trying to find other women who have had or have vulvar cancer. I realize it is rare and there is not much information on it, but I am currently still having long term effects from radiation and was wondering if anyone would be willing share info. Thanks, Trish

Hi Trisher, I was just about to head off to bed when I saw your message. Let me start by saying welcome. Vulvar cancer is rare. But there are several members who have had radiation for vulvar or other gynecological cancers that you can connect with here like @ali1974 @samaco @naturegirl5 @vsinn2000 @stoligirl and @miriam57

Trisher, how long ago did you have radiation? May I ask what long-term radiation effects you're still experiencing?

Hi Colleen, thank you for your response and suggestions and links, I really appreciate it. I finished 35 radiation treatments in December 2018. I am still experiencing diarrhea, that I have no control over. My radiologist said I would probably have it forever, due to my reaction to the radiation.
