Vulvar Cancer

    Consult With Experienced Doctors

    Overview

    Cancer of the vulvar region is a form of cancer that affects the exterior surfaces of the sexual organs and may be fatal.In women, the vulva is the region of skin that covers the vagina and urethra , as well as the clitoris and labia, among other things.

    Everything You Need To Know About Vulvar Cancer

    What is It?

    Vulvar cancer most usually manifests as a bump or irritation on the vulva which itches and bleeds. Vulvar cancer may develop at any time, however, it is more usually detected in older individuals, despite the fact that it can develop at any age.

    Vulvar cancer therapy often consists of an operation to remove the tumour as well as a small quantity of healthy tissue from the surrounding area. Vulvar cancer surgery may need the removal of the whole vulva in certain cases. The sooner vulvar cancer is discovered, the less probable it is that significant surgery would be required for a cure.

    Causes and Risk Factors

    The exact aetiology of vulvar cancer is unknown. In general, physicians understand that cancer occurs when a cell acquires alterations (mutations) in the DNA that is responsible for its growth. The DNA molecule includes the information that informs a cell what in a certain situation. The alterations instruct the cell to expand and divide at an accelerated rate. While other healthy cells would have died, the cell as well as its progeny continue to live. Invading neighbouring tissue and expanding to other regions of the body is the result of the accumulated cells becoming a tumour that may be malignant.

    Despite the fact that the specific origin for vulvar cancer is unknown, many variables tend to enhance your chances of developing the condition. These include:

    • Increasing in a year –  Vulvar cancer is more common as people become older, while it may strike at any time in one’s life. The average lifespan at which a patient is diagnosed is 65.
    • As a result of being exposed to the human papillomavirus (HPV) – Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted condition that raises the chance of developing numerous malignancies, including cervical and vulvar cancer. Many younger, sexual intercourse persons are susceptible to HPV, however, for the vast majority of them, the infection is self-limiting. Some people get cell alterations as a result of the infection, increasing their chance of developing cancer in the future.
    • Smoking –  Cigarette smoking raises the chance of developing vulvar cancer.
    • It is possible to have a compromised immune system –  A higher risk of vulvar cancer is associated with the use of immunosuppressant drugs, such as those used to treat organ transplant recipients, as well as the presence of immune-suppressing diseases like the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
    • Having a family history of vulvar precancerous diseases – Vesicular intraepithelial neoplasia is indeed a precancerous disease that raises the chance of developing vulvar cancer in the female reproductive system. The vast majority of cases with vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia would never progress to cancer, although a small proportion will progress to aggressive vulvar carcinoma in the future. As a result, your doctor may propose therapy to eliminate the abnormal cells from the affected region, as well as monthly follow-up exams.
    • Possessing a skin ailment that affects the vulva – In addition to causing vulvar skin to become thinner and irritating, lichen sclerosis also raises the chance of developing vulvar cancer.

    Symptoms

    The initial symptom is generally a bump or ulceration, which may be accompanied by itching, inflammation, or bleeding, among other things. Some women put off seeking medical attention because they are embarrassed, yet getting a diagnosis as soon as possible can enhance their chances of surviving.

    The following are the most common symptoms:

    • a sexual encounter that is unpleasant
    • bleeding
    • Pain and burning are experienced
    • Melanoma is characterised by dark discolouration
    • Urination is an unpleasant experience
    • Itching that does not go away
    • a sense of vulnerability and sensitivity
    • growths that resemble warts
    • skin that has become thicker
    • ulceration

    Various forms of vulvar cancer might manifest themselves in a variety of ways, and in other situations, there may be no discernible symptoms at all. Any alterations that occur should be looked out by a medical professional.

    Treatments

    In vulvar cancer, resection is the mainstay. Most individuals have surgery if a biopsy reveals vulvar cancer that looks to be limited to the vulva. Radiation and chemotherapy could be used if the operation cannot completely eradicate the cancer, if it is likely to recur, or if it is identified in lymph glands.

    If the tumour has advanced to the level that surgery is no longer an option, the treatment approach may include radiation treatment, followed by low-dose chemotherapy (typically with cisplatin, a cheap medication). It’s termed chemoradiation.  If indeed the vulvar lesion doesn’t really respond to these therapies, surgery may be recommended.

    Conclusion

    Periodic follow-up tests to check for a return of the cancer may be recommended by your physician once your vulvar cancer therapy is complete. Vulvar cancer may recur even after effective therapy, according to the American Cancer Society. The frequency of your follow-up tests will be determined by your physician, although in the first 2 years following vulvar treating cancer, physicians often prescribe examinations 2 to 4 times per year.

    After enduring knee pain for the past decade, my mother sought advice from various doctors in Nagpur, Nashik, and Pune. They all recommended knee replacement surgery, but it was only when we discovered Dr. Aashish Arbat and the option of robotics surgery that we made the decision to proceed.

    The surgery took place on June 23, 2023, and it turned out to be an incredible experience. To our astonishment, on the morning of June 24, my mother was able to stand on her own legs and even take a few steps. This remarkable progress was made possible due to the advanced assistance of robotics arm and Artificial Intelligence.

    Dr. Aashish Arbat is an exceptional and highly experienced surgeon, and we are immensely grateful for his expertise. We also extend our appreciation to his colleagues, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Ram, for their excellent skills and compassionate nature. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the entire team for enabling my mother to live a pain-free life
