| | vulvar biopsy
I just went and saw a gyno today, as I have a raised pale area that sometimes looks white on my vulva near my urethra. It gets very itchy, painful and swollen at times and I now wear loose dresses without underwear for comfort. I am a nurse but have been on diability for over three years as I have auto-immune hepatitis/liver failure. I'm taking Imuran to keep my immune system low, But the side effects are potential cancer!! Great. My gyno wants me to have a biopsy and removal of the lesion, but did not commit himself to what it might be, of course he doesn't know I'm a nurse, but I'm no dummy. I think I might have the big C and I'm scared silly. I worry if I'll even be able to pee? Has anyone had this procedure done and if so what was the outcome?
