I found this online today:
Pre-cancerous and cancerous conditions
Vulval intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN)
Like a woman's cervix, the tissue of the vulva can undergo abnormal cell changes. These changes are referred to as vulval intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN). Some cases of VIN are associated with the human papillomavirus (HPV), while others are thought to be due to irritation. If VIN persists for many years cancer of the vulva can develop.
Symptoms of VIN may include: itching and burning (DON'T HAVE THAT) in a specific area of the vulva; raised brown, red, pink or white lesions(YES); warty lesions(NO) or persistent erosions or ulcers(NO & NO). Treatment for VIN depends on the stage of the condition but may involve monitoring the areas as VIN can disappear on its own(THAT'S WHAT I'M HOPING FOR!). In some cases removing the abnormal tissue by surgery or laser may be required(UH-UH). Other treatments are being trialled and a vaccine against some types of HPV will hopefully decrease the incidence of HPV-related VIN in the future(DOUBT IT).
Vulval cancer is relatively uncommon, with just over 200 cases diagnosed in Australia each year (13). The majority of these cancers occur in women 50 and over. There are two main types of vulval cancer, those associated with lichen sclerosus (see lichen sclerosus section) and those related to VIN (VIN section). Symptoms of vulval cancer include: itching, burning (DON'T HAVE THAT) or pain in the vulva(YES); vulval skin that looks white(YES), feels rough(YES) or has a lump(NO); bleeding or discharge(NO) not related to menstruation (14).
Treatment for vulval cancer depends on how advanced the cancer is when diagnosed, the person's age and their overall medical condition. Early detection of vulval cancer is important as it improves the chances of successful treatment.
Surgery is the most common treatment for vulval cancer(NO WAY!). Radiation therapy(NO WAY!) and/or chemotherapy(HELL NO!) may also be used.
A vaccine for some types of HPV (which are linked to VIN and, therefore, vulval cancer) will hopefully reduce the risk of vulval cancer in the future(NEVER!).
So....what I have might be pre cancerous lesions or cancer.
How do I feel? Knowing that my husband has had a chunk of basal cell carcinoma cut off his face today and that maybe what I have is cancer too???
I feel sad, mad, HOW THE !@#$$$%^ did I get this?????, scared, depressed, frustrated, and Impatient. 33 months is a long time to suffer.
I know that cancer cannot survive my diet! No way! AND that there has been some improvement of my labia so far.
I know that God is a God of miracles. He has led me thus far.
I am doing the very best I know how to do. If there is something missing PLEASE let me know.
46 days and counting. I won't/can't stop till it's gone.
