Reading vulva self-examination leaflet

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.
