I had a partial radical vulvectomy 10 days ago. I had found a cyst on my labia about 18 months ago, saw three different health care providers who indicated it was nothing, don’t worry about it. During a hysterectomy for prolaspse, the cyst was removed and found to be cancerous. It was only 1/2 mm in size. The pathology report from the vulvectomy is negative. The most bothersome thing of this whole ordeal is that most health care providers don’t know about this type of cancer or have ever seen/done a vulvectomy. One of those providers was a gynocologist. Frustrating. It is important for us to talk about and know about.
