Vulvar cancers often cause signs or symptoms including one or more of the following:
- Itching, burning, pain or tenderness on the vulva that does not go away
- Changes in vulva skin color, where it is redder or whiter than normal for you
- Changes on the vulva skin, such as a rash, warts, sores, lumps or ulcers
- Pay attention to your body, and know what is normal for you
- If you have vaginal bleeding that is not normal for you, see a doctor right away. If you have any of the other signs that may be associated with vaginal or vulvar cancer, and they last for two weeks or longer, see a doctor. These symptoms may be caused by something other than cancer, but the only way to know is to see your doctor.
The below fact sheet about vulvar cancer is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Inside Knowledge: About Gynecologic Cancer campaign. The campaign helps women get the facts about gynecologic cancer, providing important “inside knowledge” about their bodies and health.
