Lichen sclerosus is a condition that may involve a small risk of becoming vulval cancer.
There has been a lot of education about breast self-examination for early detection of cancer. However, vulval cancer has no screening programme. Women need to rely on vulva self-examination to recognise the early signs of cancer.
Please download the self-examination leaflet here.
Another condition that needs to be looked for is Vulval Intrepithelial Neoplasia, pre-cancer cells of the vulva. This is a condition that may lead to vulval cancer as well.
