What are the Symptoms of Vulvar Cancer?
You can have vulvar cancer without having any symptoms, but many women do. These are some common symptoms of vulvar cancer:
A change in the feel of your skin around the vulva. Your skin may feel thicker, scalier, rougher, or bumpier than surrounding skin.
One type of vulvar cancer, called melanoma of the vulva, has different symptoms. These are some of the possible signs of vulvar melanoma:
An abnormal mole. It may be asymmetrical, meaning one half doesn’t match the other. The mole may have an irregular or lacy border, meaning the edges are ragged, or it may also be irregular in color. A mole that is wider than 1/4 inch may be of concern as well
These symptoms may be signs of other problems, including noncancerous changes. See your doctor to know for sure.
