There is a forum here called Cancer: Cervical and Ovarian. Since most cervical cancers and squamous cell, and I think vulvar cancer is usually squamous, you might find some information there.
I went into my gyn for a pap. I had a sore for some time, but just ignored it, assuming my urine was annoying it. He asked me how long it had been there. 8-12 mo? I think. He immediately closed his office, and literally sliced what he could get right there in the office. 1 1/2 hours. local anestheia. I had NO IDEA what was happening. I thought he was just gonna take a biopsy. He sent that out and it came back as not gone. I have an appt. with a gynecological oncologist on wed. I am terrified. I did research, what a mistake, I don't know what to expect. I just wanted to talk to someone who knows something. I'm already arranging my funeral. I can't think of anything else. I'm rambling... sorry. thanks for your response...
