Early Detection, Diagnosis, and Staging TOPICS

Can vulvar cancer be found early?

Having pelvic exams and knowing any signs and symptoms of vulvar cancer greatly improve the chances of early detection and successful treatment. If you have any of the problems discussed in the next section, you should see a doctor. If the doctor finds anything abnormal during a pelvic examination, you may need more tests to figure out what is wrong. This may mean referral to a gynecologist (specialist in problems of the female genital system).

There is no standard screening for this disease other than routine physical examinations.
