vulval cancer

vulval cancer
a relatively rare gynaecological cancer, most common in the elderly. The most common symptom is longstanding itch, but vulval pain, discharge, and bleeding have also been reported. Surgery is the primary treatment, with wide excision by radical vulvectomy and regional lymhadenectomy. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy can also be used.
